Showing in Open Houses
Over the last 15 years I have worked with a wide variety of materials and in a range of mediums. These have included; sculpture, full size life drawings, and abstract water colour paintings which are based on notions of matter, mass and particles.

I have also worked in a number of materials from plastic, wood, glass, varnishes and plaster – exploring the possibilities of depth, layers and surface of a canvas.

At the heart of my work has always been drawing, mark making and colour; whether this be on sculptural surfaces or on detailed drawings of people.
During the last year I have become very interested in the technology of digital pens and tablets. I have spent time learning these new programmes, exploring their immediacy and range of colour palettes, brush and drawing techniques that they offer.
