Questioning and playing with what is in front and what is behind, what is above and below - using the situation and value of light and the situation of the viewer, drawing attention to what is seen and what was unseen.
I have studied the history, theory and practice of painting at the prestigious Slade School of Fine Art, graduating with Honors in 2009. Since then I have exhibited at the beautiful Fulham Palace Gallery, sold work to private and corporate clients, completed an Artist Residency in Asia and have begun a Masters degree in Art and Environment at University College Falmouth. I paint images of landscapes in oils and I am investigating natural dyes from plants to directly use materials from the environments that I paint. I aim to capture the beauty of nature working from life, memory and studies sometimes on my boat where I live or in my studio both in Cornwall. I accept commissions and host workshops on natural dye techniques so please feel free to contact me about this.
