Summary

I’m a London-born visual artist, who’s exhibited in solo and group shows in the UK and overseas.
Drawing dominates my artwork. I produce framed work and wall-sized installations.
I’ve created a strong visual style, which I use to represent objects. By cutting-out the drawings, often on coloured and patterned papers, I introduce a physical aspect, which builds up visual depth and dynamic movement.

Statement

Creating drawings of objects with a strong 3D effect, my artwork focuses on exposing aspects of who we are and our society’s priorities, with strong visual effect.
By drawing simple lines with oil pastels I juxtapose the modern visual language of graphics with the traditional Fine art medium of oils.
Objects are under-appreciated; I’m helping them fight back. It’s an uprising of downtrodden, overlooked items, from within and without our materialistic consumer world.

I deal with the value of objects, what they mean to us, their personalities and how they can have power over us.
