Born in London, Camden Town, I now practice my art between London and Barcelona.
Education: initially self taught and fascinated by faces and gestures, my studio was the London Underground where I learnt to capture fleeting glimpses and develop my sense of mark making. In recent years I have studied more traditional techniques of oil painting and how to capture the fall of light. My practice exists in building a bridge between these modes, between the primal, instinctive line and the delicate, analytical balance of colour, of light and dark.
Transformation: drawing, dancing and music feel akin to me, the arc of a line is the gesture of the body and the sign of a melody, my figurative work plays along these lines of abstraction, distortion and metamorphosis. The plurality of expression that blurs the boarders between various art forms makes it natural for me to mix media and styles, I am searching for those lived moments that are ‘unfixed’, always evolving.
Textual/Textural: I experiment with writing, symbols and visual language and am fascinated by how images and words run together and alongside, and by the writing that patterns our public and private spaces. I am a great lover of handwriting and an avid letter writer. These things in turn, all feed back into my work which is tied up with the traces written into our bodies by time and experience.
