“I always see art as a necessity. You make it because it has to be made.”
My work is mainly about people. I focus on faces, figures and forms in collage, paint and print.
I am inspired by what we do, what we say and what we think as well as by the consequences of our actions. I often paint myself as a reflection of what I see around me – and because I’m always available as a model!
My practice is influenced by my previous career with children and young people, many of whom were disabled, disaffected and on the margins of society. It has its roots in the belief that we are all equal and that we should be treated with courtesy, respect and dignity.
I am currently studying Fine Art at Falmouth University and graduate in 2021.
