About me

I have always been into art. I trained at Central Saint Martin's before completing a Masters in Asian Art History at the School of Oriental and African Studies. When I started running this business my energies shifted from the practical to helping my gallery grow and develop. With the Covid lockdowns, I have rediscovered my passion for creating and have decided to start sharing my work.

I enjoy exploring a range of different techniques to produce my prints and paintings. In this collection there are wax printed originals which explore the weights of pigments and the layering of colour.

Symbolism and art historical references are key to my work as I explore ideas that try to promote thought and questions about our relationship to the past and future.

'Idol', a study for a larger work, is one of my most recent paintings. This plays with the idea that we tend to focus on what is in the picture frame rather than its surroundings. Of course the idol is actually Atlas holding up the frame, rather than the void inside it and a reflection of a famous Giorgio de Chirico is hiding behind.
