The way I create is not a straight line. I work in series, collections, or projects. depending on my mood or what has recently inspired me. Acknowledging these different bodies of work allows me to move between them as they influence each other. My go-to media is painting, but I also use projection and photography in my process, and incorporate other methods such as encaustic and collage.
Colour, light, memory and emotion are my main inspirations, with subject matter ranging from cut flowers or travel-based memories to simple colour transitions, boats in harbours and back again.
Objects are abstracted and reduced to simpler forms and colours are intensified as the story is told. Music always plays when I work (female singer-songwriters feature heavily) and influences both the feeling of the paintings and their resulting titles.
I work from a mews studio and gallery in Hove, East Sussex, where I exhibit my own work and that of other Sussex artists whom I champion.
I run small painting workshops here throughout the year. The gallery is open during the warmer months and by appointment.
My paintings are available to purchase in the gallery and online, as well as from galleries across the UK.
