I am a York based artist who is led by intuition and an experimental approach to transforming the physical qualities of materials – seeking out new forms and colour combinations through a haptic experience with the mediums I use – with the aim of revealing hidden depths and the collateral beauty. My work falls between the movements of Abstract Expressionism and Post-Modern Process based art.
I am fascinated by how you can use different tools,media and methods to be expressive. Recently I have been developing an encaustic approach, which uses hot waxes and oil paints and a heat gun with amazing effects!
My work is my alter-ego: the part of me which is hidden to most but, in the comfort of my art studio, finds the freedom to express itself in bold, energetic and passionate ways. Here, I am never ‘too much’ or ‘not enough’. My current body of work reflects my personal journey of discovering: finding, manipulating, layering, revealing and reconstructing to create something uniquely beautiful.
