Hello there! Thank you for looking at my art work!
I am a professional artist and illustrator living in London. My paintings explore the themes of mystery and imagination, curiosity and wonder.
My work is characterised by luxurious jewel like colours, intricate pattern and detail. Creating dreamlike calm spaces where one can escape.
My technique of choice is gouache or watercolour on paper. In the last couple of years I have started painting with oil colours on canvas which I am enjoying for it’s subtle transparencies and richness.
I achieved an MA in Fine Art from the University of Seville and have illustrated several books for British and American publishers. Alongside my fine art and illustrative work, I’ve also designed and painted many large murals for institutions, private mural commissions and for the charity Kids Company run by Camila Batmanghelidjh.
My exhibition history includes shows at The Jonathan Cooper Park Walk Gallery, The Russell Gallery, Jenna Burlingham Gallery, The Coningsby Gallery, Four Walls Gallery and The Framers Gallery all in London.
The Brian Sinfield Gallery in Burford, the Cotswolds and the RWA Bristol.
I have also have had exhibitions in Spain in la Sala Mercado, La Sala de Arte and Sala Municipal de Exposiciones de Malaga.
I regularly exhibit at the Affordable Art Fair with The Russell gallery and with Brian Sinfield Gallery. Taken part in Works on Paper Art fair, 20/21 International Art Fair and The Decorative Antique and Textile Fair.
