Artist's Statement:

My work is the expression of a lifelong affinity with the landscape. I live on the North Yorkshire coast of the UK, and this location is a constant source of inspiration to my painting. My interest lies not in making a literal representation of nature but rather in celebrating the physical sensory experience of land and sea. As a result, the semi-abstract paintings are vibrant and energetic, combining gestural marks and the use of rich evocative colour.
Associations arise from the colours and lines - a fresh green may be reminiscent of new foliage in springtime, a round shape may recall pebbles smoothed by the waves. I use a gradual layering of paint to create my work, and oil sticks (oil paint in solid form) are often used to integrate drawing and painting. Recently drawing has been central to my work and I have used pastel, charcoal and graphite to explore mark-making. Influences include Abstract Expressionism (particularly Willem de Kooning), Joan Eardley, Cy Twombly and Cornish art.
I have exhibited extensively across the UK, including with the Royal Academy of Arts, the Society of Women Artists, and the Pastel Society UK, London. I am honoured to have won awards for my work such as The Arts Club Charitable Trust Award in 2014, the Haworth Prize in 2015, and the Unison Colour Young Artists Award in 2016, London. This year I am excited to have been elected a member of the prestigious Pastel Society, London. I have work in private collections across the UK and Europe, Africa, Mexico and the US.
