  • Biography
My work focuses on the human figure. I am interested in the emotive qualities of body gesture, colour and mark-making.
My practice is rooted in observation, memory and the power of imagination. In each piece I am constantly searching beyond mere appearance, attempting instead to connect the vulnerability, fragility and impermanence of the individual with the sense of a common and shared humanity that a viewer can identify with.
I work primarily in oils but also make unique works on paper using monotype and other print media.
