I have been lucky enough to spend several years in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and then Cape Town, South Africa, where I lived from 2015-2019. Both countries inspired me to explore new techniques leading me to create contemporary abstract paintings in mixed media.
I like to use mixed media on traditional and patterned fabric onto which I layer textures, interweaving a surface of patterns, symbolism and playful marks. My background in traditional techniques shows through in my work, sometimes animals or people emerge from an obscure background.
I won wildlife in action a couple of times at the Wildlife Artist of the Year in London and supporting conservation has been important throughout my career.
