Originally from London, I studied painting in Coventry University and graduated in 99. Shortly afterwards I moved to Spain and have been living abroad ever since. I believe that this has had had a considerable impact on my work and general art-related interests. I began to work seriously as an artist in around 2004/5, participating in group shows in Barcelona and Catalunya. I've had solo exhibitions in Ireland and Spain and residencies in Spain and Australia. I'm participating in the New Artist Fair as I'm moving back to London this autumn and feel rather disconnected from my 'home' town.
Both the natural and urban environment provide the settings for my compositions. I'm particularly interested in the often 'jarring' role of human beings in these environments and attempt to introduce a considered level of theatricality to the pieces. Drawing and photography provide the bulk of the material for the construction of my figurative paintings.
