  'I paint to capture the essence of the human mind' 



Art in the home.


I am delighted to have work hanging in many `grand design’ contemporary and beautiful homes around the UK and abroad. I have enjoyed seeing their impact, and  I'm excited for you to witness this, too.


A large painting can elevate the appearance and enhance the atmosphere of a home, providing the occupants with a greater, more vibrant and engaging home experience.


Abstract expressionism is my most significant artistic influence, and from an interior design perspective, 'more is more'; my paintings and my ethos are maximalist.                       

I work from my studio in Dallinghoo, a charming village in Suffolk, UK. I paint on large canvas or boards and create with various mediums. Traditional oil paints are my favourite medium. However, I experiment with different materials to discover and keep open to new ways to further my art practice and to translate my subject, (the mind). I am currently working on an exciting series of heavily textured paintings.  I'm also enchanted by the effects of UV lighting when using fluorescent paint. Some of my paintings painted using this paint hold a magical night-time secret: a real wow factor: they will light up your environment. Check out my videos on my home page.

Last year my paintings featured on 'Remarkable Renovations', a Channel Four programme hosted by George Clarke.

I often paint a floating mass of entangled lines, moving shapes and swirling strokes in space. I use this visual imagery to describe the essence of our mind. With our thoughts, emotions and behaviours, the mind is a compellingly complicated and beautiful subject. I am thrilled when viewers resonate with the desire to investigate to understand ourselves better. Mindfulness is a great way to achieve this understanding; many of my paintings centre around this practice. I paint the mental state of being at peace, caught in that moment. Also, I paint the mental state of being in the monkey mind. These states, bound as one, never far from each other's side. This invisible energy is the subject I love and need to paint.
