Colour excites me, grabs my attention and fuels my creativity.
I create bold, captivating artwork that catches the eye and fires the imagination.
Alongside my obsession with colour, my work bears the influence of time spent at university studying geology, my love of west Cornwall and anything that grabs my attention, like a line from a song or a bunch of plastic spades at the seaside.
Whether you’re looking for a large statement piece for your home or business or something smaller to inject some energy into a narrow space or pop on a shelf, with their striking colour palettes and expressive marks, my vibrant paintings will create an impact in any space.
I work from my studio in Worcester, on the top floor of the Victorian house where I live with my husband and our adorable cat. I paint quite quickly and instinctively. Once I’ve selected my colour palette I get to work with painting knives, rubber tipped brushes and even kitchen utensils, liberally applying acrylic paint, often straight from the tube, scraping and mark making.
Close examination of my work reveals mesmerising contours of colour, intriguing marks and undulating textures.
I love the freedom of making art, the joy of experimenting and not fully knowing where it's going to lead. I want to create art that provokes a reaction from the viewer, arouses their curiosity and causes them to pause and take a closer look.
Since my first public exhibition more than 12 years ago, my vibrant artwork has gained recognition and been shown across the West Midlands and in London, Surrey and St Ives. I am an ArtGemini Prize finalist and my work has been selected for the Society of Women Artists Annual Exhibition in London.
I have completed private and public commissions, including bespoke designs for windows in Worcester’s historic former Hop Market Hotel. My largest artwork to date, Jackson, was one of the most popular elephant sculptures in Worcester’s Big Parade art trail in 2021.
