About Me

I am a contemporary artist from Wales, since graduating in fine art, I have worked from my studio in Cardiff. With a background in textile arts & teaching, my current work is primarily concerned with painting & printmaking.

The impetus for making art work usually emerges during my daily walk in the natural landscape, where I experience a strong sensation of unity with the world.

I make observations of natural phenomena such as light, archetypal form or the intrinsic geometrical order, rhythm & impermanence in nature.

Over a period of time these perceptions gestate and become intertwined with other cultural influences and memories from my daily life. My art practice is an attempt to meditate upon the inherent symbolism and interconnected nature of my environment.

When I begin a new body of work it is with the intention of making visible my perception. Initially I develop a series of many pieces in different media. The work evolves intuitively through a formal reduction regarding composition and palette. The result is abstract and explores the essence of the idea along with the aesthetic materiality of the materials chosen.
