I am a mixed media artist predominantly using acrylic and oil pastels in a sgraffito style.
I work on paper because I prefer its smooth surface which feels more suited to manipulation. I also like that it is very accessible.
I am particularly interested in expressing vulnerability, in/visibility and perceived beauty and imperfections. As such most of my work display themes of resilience, connection, breakdown, transformation, recovery and power.
I also value the importance and power of nature.
The paintings are often textured with bold, sometimes garish colours. This can appear to contrast with the subject matter. My work is often layered, revealing and concealing.
I am inspired by H.Rousseau, Basquiat, Van Gogh, Kahlo, T.Emin, L.S Lowry, Banksy, Picasso, Munch, Kusama, The Stuckists, Art Brut, Street art and other marginalised artists and groups.
I also love trees, chickens, gardening, bicycles, sunshine and art shops!
