In my artworks I combine a loose graphic style with abstract elements, references from art history and my own dreams & memories, to create works which feature detailed interiors, portraits, landscapes and still life. Plants play a large role in each image offering glimpses of life and growth in a richly coloured world where pattern and shape is a predominant feature. Echoing the digital representation of real life through hyper vivid colour and art historical influences, these works speak of the time we live in and the spaces we inhabit. Each work offers a scene which could be walked into, familiar yet fantastical, a growing collection of stories which I translate through a language of visual representation.
Born in Leicester in 1972 and like most artists I started sketching at a very early age, losing myself in the process of depicting my surroundings. My career in visual art included training and becoming a master screen printer, graphic designer, photographer and eventually a fine artist. I received a First class BA honours degree in fine art from De Montfort University before setting up a studio near my home in Leicestershire where I work from today.
My easily recognisable style has grown and developed throughout the last few years. Early works featured large scale black and white charcoal drawings but the death of a close relative made me rethink my whole style and focus on the vibrancy, colour and beauty of the world we inhabit.
My work has appeared on screen in major NETFLIX shows and I've been lucky enough to have solo exhibitions in Los Angeles & the UK alongside group shows in London, Florida, New York City, Palm Springs, Brisbane and Leicester and my work now sits in collections in Europe, USA, Australia, New Zealand, UK.
