Painting, Photography, Drawing, Mixed Media


Artist statement:

My practice evolves from the exploration of drawing, painting and photography as a visual language. I am interested in colour as a sense perception and the use of colour in cultural value systems. I work initially from objective sources, from found everyday objects: cups, boxes, envelopes, and a lid for example. Emptied of their previous contents, these tangible objects became the subject of subtle illusionistic drawings which in turn offered a starting point for the imaginative and physical possibilities of paint. I have exhibited drawing, painting, installation, objects and photography in London and nationally. Selected exhibitions include: C & C Gallery inaugural group exhibition (2012); Dialogues in America-Latina, Institute of Education London (2012); Creekside Open 2011, selected by Phillida Barlow at APT Gallery Deptford (2011); Parallax Art Fair London (2011); Drawing Two Hundred, Drawing Room, London (2005); ‘Ida Branson memorial award for MA Exhibition 2004’ at the Atkinson Gallery Somerset. I have researched and lead many art projects for Gallery education departments, including: Serpentine Gallery, Estorick Collection, Hayward, and Victoria Miro Gallery. Studied Fine Art at Central Saint Martins ( MA Fine Art 2003), Goldsmiths and Camberwell colleges of Art.
