  • Biography

    “Creating art is my passion and my vocation, it is what I am called to do.”

     

    I am a full time studio based Fine Artist, painting and drawing life, love and people, I live and work in the North East of England.

     

     

    My work explores beauty, femininity, love, passion and a sense of self. The inspiration comes from memories, life experiences, dreams, fantasies and traumas.

    As with all artists the work taps into the stream of artists and artworks from across the ages, none of us exist in a vacuum, influences come in from a range of eras and genres.

     

    My work is driven by the desire to create work which pushes the boundaries of my own art practice, exploring both figurative themes and ‘the surface’, through various mediums. I constantly strive to make innovative work, with a foundation in observation, drawing and mark making, my practice has explored painting, inked work, printmaking, sculpture, installation and site specific work.

    Painting makes my heart sing!

     When I am free, when I allow my materials to be free, when I find "happy accidents" which I can hone into usable, repeatable techniques, drips, spills, layers.

     

    Since completing my formal arts education, gaining both a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Art and a Masters Degree in Fine Art, I have exhibited nationally and locally, including solo exhibitions and group shows, both commercial and gallery settings, also many commercial and private commissions. Including a commission for the Director and Screen Writer Joss Whedon, this came about as part of my last Kickstarter Exhibition Project.

    I work from my studio in Middlesbrough as part of the Gilkes Street Artists studio group

     

    Having sold 350+ original paintings via online platforms and physical exhibitions, both nationally and internationally, you can be sure you are viewing work by an experienced art practitioner. Each original piece arrives with a hand written, wax sealed parchment, which serves as provenance for the artwork. Please browse the Gallery and Shop to find a piece of original art which speaks to you.

    Event: SELFHOODS

    SELFHOODS is an exhibition of new work by members of Gilkes Street Artists, a Middlesbrough-based studio group. The featured pieces explore what is familiar to each artist, from their inner worlds to their immediate surroundings.

    Event: Localism

    Dates: Oct. 10, 2015 - Feb. 7, 2016

    Venue: MIMA (Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art), Middlesbrough

    ‘Localism’ is an ambitious project telling the story of art in Middlesbrough from its beginnings in 1829 to now. It takes a radical approach to exhibition making, inviting the public to help write the narrative with workshops that grow the show, adding to it as we go, thus creating an encyclopaedic family tree of creativity on Teesside.
    It’s also more than just an exhibition as we join up people and places across the region to celebrate and debate our own cultural history and its impact on the wider world. Topics include Christopher Dresser and the Linthorpe Pottery, bridge building, the remarkable Boosbeck Industries in the 1930s and the existence of mima itself. In a thoroughly internationalised world, Localism restates the vitally important role of the local in the development of art and society.
