Lives and works in Shropshire

Bio: I produce paintings that merge abstraction, realism and the essence of time. Consecutive layering has developed to create the illusion of space, both in-between individual layers and compositionally to form the image. This implies the passing of time; a single moment that has been frozen and stretched out, creating energy within a space of stillness.

I am interested in the study of human behaviour within our western culture. We are in the age of global networking and communication, where hand held devices have become an extension of our bodies and identity. Our attention is fixated online. Behind the safety of the ‘blue screen’ we engross ourselves in this virtual world. My work focuses on the absence of physical social engagement due to the need to communicate through our phones.
