  • Biography
My concern with spatial awareness, is evident within my work, which continually plays with conventional ideas about spaces. My paintings look at perspective, composition and structure and are inspired by Brutalist architecture.

My interest in architecture is something which I have continuously been captivated by, the powerful structures and materials of these building have always fascinated me. I constantly refine my compositions to create spaces that highlight the hidden beauty of buildings that would often be overlooked. By isolating them from their original surroundings, I want to give the viewer no option but to interactive with them.
