About, Selected Exhibitions & Residencies

Raised against the picturesque backdrop of West Cornwall, my artistic journey began with a passion for self-expression and a keen eye for the interplay of colour and texture. After delving into the world of Fine Art with a degree from Bath Spa University, I transitioned into the role of an Art Teacher, dedicating myself to nurturing creativity in others. In 2021, I made the choice to redirect my focus entirely towards my own artistic endeavors. My work revolves around the vibrant world of colour and texture, weaving together elements of self-expression and glimpses of the surrounding landscape. Drawing inspiration from my Cornish roots, the luminosity of the outdoors, and the sea. Abstract beauty born from a unique blend of influences.
I embrace the visual realm as my language of choice, translating the essence of my experiences into a tapestry of artistic expression. I perceive the world through images, assimilating the details of my surroundings into my paintings. The creative process takes me back to the heart of my upbringing, where childhood memories, family time, and vibrant conversations serve as the palette for my compositions.
Working primarily in acrylics, I embark on each piece with a multilayered approach, often simultaneously starting several works. The addition of oil bar drawings atop the paintings allows me to knit together space and colour, infusing the artwork with a dynamic energy that reflects the underlying element of fun in my process. My goal is to create art that transcends generational boundaries, making it accessible to all ages. Ultimately, my artwork serves as a visual diary, capturing the essence of the life I lead. Each piece is a collection of my words translated into a vibrant visual language, inviting viewers to immerse themselves in the rich tapestry of my experiences.
