Hello, I would like to offer you a warm welcome to my online Gallery. I have been a working artist since 2011 but in 2013 decided to devote my time to art on a full time basis. In 2016 I graduated with a First Class Degree in Fine Art from the University of Chichester. During my studies my work appeared in various art trails and group shows, and one painting, “March 2015”, was selected by Jonathan Jones, The Guardian Newspaper’s Art Critic and Turner Prize Jury Member (2009), and Gilly Fox, British Art Show 8 Curator for inclusion in a show at their London headquarters.
I returned to Chichester later in 2016 to study an MA in Fine Art which I completed with Merit in 2018. Alongside these studies, I am proud to have taken part in Arthur Rackham’s 150th birthday celebration by producing a series of responses to his work which was exhibited along with my own at Batemans the home of Rudyard Kipling, during September and October, 2017. One the the works from they show, “Drifter”, was subsequently pre-selected for the Columbia Threadneedle Prize, 2018, and another, “Lady Grenfell” was auctioned on February 2018 at the Royal Bank of Scotland HQ in London by Bonhams, alongside work from Tom Hammick, Gilbert and George, and many others, with all proceeds going to those made homeless by the Grenfell Tower disaster.
I have work in private collections across the UK, USA, France, and the Netherlands.
In 2019 I moved from Sussex to Devon, and have had the great pleasure of exhibiting twice at Powderham Castle since then. Since the advent of Covid-19 I have been fortunate to be able to remain busy in the studio, continuing with my research and building a new body of work with more and more emphasis on intuition as time goes on. I look forward to being able to meet some of you in the future, until then, stay in, stay safe, and enjoy browsing my gallery.
