I rediscovered my passion for art after a personal trauma which lead me to find solace, putting paintbrush to canvas. My work has a presence of calm, as I interlace smooth brush strokes with texture and body, which creates a collection of work best described as abstract with a contemporary twist. I feel that my work is broad enough to allow for individual interpretation and resonance.
Water metaphors plentifully in our language, especially around our emotional and mental wellness, and that is the most important aspect of my work.
Big bodies of water can make one feel small, and I aim to create paintings which epitomises the sublimity of nature, and the enormous sense of awe and emotion which we can often feel when in contact with water.
Born and raised in West Sussex, I feel very privileged to be able to enjoy our beautiful coastline, and witness the therapeutic powers of the sea.
