About me

I use paint to explore themes of identity, internal narrative and reflection. My favourite subjects are portraits and animals, because with these I can capture a moment of communication between sitter and viewer. And my landscapes include signs of human influence - buildings, boats, benches - through which we can enter the scene.

I work mostly in oils on canvas, although ink and charcoal sketches are a big feature in my studio practice too. My paintings feature strong colours and brushstrokes to match the strong characters portrayed.

I love the portraits of Cezanne, Van Gogh and Munch and the way that oil paint's vibrant colours and texture can express a mood and capture a moment.

My paintings are intended to make the viewer take a moment to consider the subject's personal identity and what they may be feeling or thinking - what their internal narrative is at that moment, building a habit of empathy.
