I make abstract paintings on canvas and paper and recently I have taken a new direction working in 3 Dimensions using acrylic paint on wood. These assemblages could be described as expanded paintings. The pieces are concerned with how colour behaves when it moves over a 3D surface. Colour is the predominant factor in the work, although my use of colour is intuitive, I am rigorous in my process.

Although abstract, the paintings are developed from observations of my urban surroundings, structures, patterns and formations.

I gained an MA in Fine Art from Nottingham Trent University.
I have exhibited widely both regionally and abroad, a full CV can be found on my website.
