ABOUT THE ARTIST
I am a London-based fine artist who creates fantastical visual narratives based on intuitively developed fiction and lore. I work with oil paint and watercolour, utilise vibrant colours and bold brushwork, reminiscent of Fauvism. My artwork is exoteric and depicts recurring characters and fictional rituals within surreal landscapes. I also create sculpture and installation artwork; a virtual and sensory experience which can be described as a walk within one of my paintings. My practice illustrates a layering of history, fractured memory and myth influenced by nature, music, writing, powerful female icons and my birthplace, Epping Forest. Collating photography, collage and sculpture I recontextualise visual abstracts from my surroundings, popular culture and within memory. I think of my work as escapist, dream-like and a portal through which the audience can make otherworldly discoveries.
My work has been exhibited in group shows across London, most recently at Graham Hunter Gallery, Bargehouse Oxo Tower and Truman Brewery on Brick Lane.
