Self taught artist working in acrylics. I paint many commissions mainly of animals and landscapes but am also painting my own comical animal characters to sell in print from the original acrylic canvas painting.
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.
