Artist | Printmaker | Grocer
One of the most challenging things about my art is choosing the fruit! Grocery shopping has never been quite the same since I began to search out the most engaging 'models' for my paintings and prints.
I’m a London-based painter and printmaker with a fascination for light, nature and scale. Born in Chelsea, I studied art and design at Wimbledon School of Art and the London College of Printing and lived in Singapore and Hong Kong for a while, where I also studied Chinese calligraphy. I regard all my subjects as portraits, whether flora or fauna, exploring the character behind each model, be it the figure-like shape of pears that exude human qualities, the secret of an unopened lily, or the playful cheekiness of a bird.
For my most recent work I have been experimenting with variable printing techniques. Using stencils, I paint directly onto silk screens, applying the paint in many layers to create depth and texture. The application of colour can be controlled to a certain extent, but the process is all the more intriguing because there is an element of randomness when the paint is drawn through the screen.
If you are interested in any of my work, please contact me. Come and see me in my studio at the Wimbledon Art Fair on 9-12 May 2019.
