I’m a painter and photographer based in Cornwall. I also explore other mediums, such as film, music, and writing. It all feeds into the same creative stream. My work often reflects on landscapes I have been to or imagine visiting. The sensation of being in a place interests me greatly. I am always searching for an environment's emotional quality. Or perhaps better said, I am trying to render something of my own emotional situation in a given environment.
A two year trip to the United States, taken in 2016, continues to inform my work. The vast array of landscapes I came across triggered an undying love of the road, and of the natural world, which I try to reclaim and index in my work.
I’m interested in a stylistic sweet spot between minimal composition and expressionism. This liminal territory often includes rigid shapes, defined spaces, and structures - but they are executed in a painterly and expressive way. I am always trying to incorporate colours and marks I have seen in the world, to convey something of the sensation of being in a place. At once, I try to reach into uncharted parts of my mind, my experience; try to look for what exists in those more subconscious or indirect brain processes.
I have sold work through instagram for the past year and now have pieces in various collections across the UK and internationally.
