My paintings combine experiences of inner and outer worlds, essentially paintscapes of thought, feeling and intuition. Toughly material, I often work with pigments and binders that feel close to the earth. These pieces were made during lockdown, in confinement and isolation, and explore blue pigments like ultramarine and cobalt. Blue, the colour of distance, memory, time, sky, sea, and the Virgin’s robes; this series explores its history, beauty and associations. I live and work in Sudbury, Suffolk and have a BA History of Art, University of Warwick and MA Fine Art, Norwich University of the Arts. My work has been selected for the Jerwood Drawing Prize and Royal Academy Summer exhibition and is in several collections worldwide. I regularly exhibit in the UK and abroad and am a member of Contemporary British Painting.
