I live and work in Muswell Hill with my family. I have a home based studio where I work everyday.
About my work
I make abstract paintings with hand mixed oil paints direct from pigment. The pigments are chosen for their beauty and for the resonance within the history of trade and mark making.
In the process of making my work I research the history, composition and physical qualities of the pigments and they play a kind of quiet symbolism in my work.
The paintings are presented to the viewer as an invitation to fall in, get a little lost and remember.
I am also engaged in Community Art Projects, the current one is based in Corby Glen in Lincolnshire and is running until September 2019.
