On Etsy since 2015

An abstract artist and printmaker that loves to experiment with colour and texture

Two of my major interests are the spontaneity of mark making, and the many ways (whether natural or artificial) by which textures and colours in our environment can mutate and change.

I choose to work in series and layers so that my work can evolve, adding an element of surprise to the finished product. This approach allows each piece to branch out and follow a unique path of its own - shaped by the techniques and treatments applied, yet still sharing common themes.

I combine printmaking and painting techniques with mixed media and found objects to explore and create a broad range of tones and textures. By placing hard edges alongside organic textures, I can manufacture striking contrasts while maintaining balance. I enjoy working with the unpredictable patterns that form as each piece progresses.

I take inspiration from both my materials and my surroundings. The Cornish coast where I spent my childhood, and the Peak District closer to my current home, have both informed my work for many years.

I graduated from De Montfort University in 2003 with a BA in Fine Arts, specialising in abstract painting and printmaking.
