I was born in Wales and is now living and working in London. I graduated
from Central St.Martins MA course in Fine Art. My current body of work
encompasses painting, photography and graphics.
are on MDF board with gloss paint on an eggshell background. There is
a play between surfaces. They are carefully blown up images . The gloss
paint is built up through a series of manipulated layers, as if transported
straight from a pot of household paint, which then glides across the picture
surface. The surface sheen of the paintings almost gives a sense of an
advertisement in play, fusing artistic and household materials and employing
bold striking colours.
I am also
the Director/Curator of www.purelypainting.com , which I began working
on in October. It is a site that specialises in Contemporary paintings.
