My practice is painting with oil on silk over other surfaces such as canvas and board. It is work that examines unremarkable and often familiar scenes, glimpses of life captured from moving transport.
Recently, I have been exploring the Sojourn, working on a series of paintings that reflect the transient quality of travel, or even daily walks. This idea of a Sojourn in a new context where it represents a sighting, a change in the light or for instance, in a rainbow.
Recent subjects of focus in my paintings are vacant commercial properties photographed on city explorations and passengers in transit that aim to question our identity in contemporary society.
I began painting during an apprenticeship in New York following my formal art training at Epsom School of Art.
Painting the New York cityscape during this period and later returning to London where I still draw much of my inspiration, from commuters underground to the ubiquitous facades that surround us daily.
I have been included in many group shows including the Columbia Threadneedle Prize 2018 and twice selected to exhibit work in The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2015 and 2019.
