Meet The Artist


I am a UK based mixed media artist using paint, paper, found objects and ephemera to explore our relationship with the natural world.

 

My paintings and artworks can be either representational or abstract depending on the subject and what it is I want to convey to the viewer. Likewise my subject matter varies but there is always a connection somewhere to nature. 

Work has found new homes in countries as diverse as the UK, USA, Australia, Dubai, France, Sweden and Germany to name but a few.

All prices include UK shipping; please contact me if you are outside the UK for a quote.

There is a contact form at the bottom of the website plus a newsletter sign up if you would like to be kept up to date with new releases and arty happenings in my world. 

 

Latest Work

Here you'll find my latest work, I've recently been exploring the medium of Collage through Abstract Expressionism and experimenting with the Collagraph printing technique.

If you have any questions or you would like to rehome an artwork please get in touch using the contact form.

Rockpooling 1
Rockpooling 1

I live by the sea and the beach in front of my house is perfect for rockpooling. I can spend hours exploring! These three collages were created in response to a morning sketching and observing the life, sound, textures and emotions on the beach. Abstracted and created intuitively. This small mixed media collage is loosely mounted onto a piece of A5 watercolour paper so it could be framed as is or easily unmounted for framing in a different way.Image Size 11cm x 16cm £45 incl UK shipping.

Using a wallpaper sample as the background I have block printed, painted and collaged an abstracted, colourful, still life. £195

Pink and Green Still Life
Pink and Green Still Life

A study of a Monstera Plant. The composition is deceptively simple as the painting has, once again, many layers; hinted at by the background texture. I started with a base of acid free tissue that I stained green with acrylic inks, adhered to a sheet of heavy watercolour paper. Then, using negative painting I created the leaf forms by blocking in the pink background. Handprinted paper forms the vase and I block printed the tablecloth. SOLD

Floral with lace and pink tablecloth

Layers upon layers of mixed media elements have created this painting including, hand printed papers, poetry , an antique letter and a lace doily ! I loved painting this, it was such a joyous, messy process and so cathartic. It measures 16" x 20" with a Daler board base. £350

Funky Plant Orange and Yellow copy.jpg
Funky Plant Orange and Yellow

My funky plant is created from multiple layers of hand painted painted acid-free tissue and other hand painted papers, all adhered to heavy watercolour paper using the negative painting technique to pick out the form. Lots of paint, colour and love; a definite one off and the perfect antidote to worry and stress ! Sold
