About

Me
I am a painter working from my studio in Cardiff. I studied at the University of South Wales and received a First Class Honours degree in Animation. After working in digital marketing for 5 years I made a big career change to focus on developing as an artist. 

Recent exhibitions include The Senedd (National Assembly for Wales), Fringe Arts Bath and Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester. My animations have been screened internationally in Paris, Vienna and Germany.
My work
I use painting to create a deeper connection with the world around me. In doing so, I hope to encourage others to do the same. My aim is to explore, observe and reflect upon human experience. The subjects I choose to depict vary, but all stem from a desire to capture fleeting moments, making sense of the world and our place in it.

In an age dominated by the digital image, I love the physicality of painting. I draw on traditional techniques but apply an instinctive style using glazes, drips and textures to combine the representational with the abstract. My paintings capture the essence of a person or place as seen through my eyes as an artist.
