About the Artist
“ I never realised until later in my painting career how many of my influences come from the past. From the colour palette I use, to the materials used and mark-making, the legacy impact of having grown up amidst intensely beautiful landscapes surrounded by a crumbling city are prevalent in my work.
These artistic expressions house complex ideas carefully concealed within deep layers of mixed media. My work provides an escape, a connection point with the past but with a contemporary feel.”
