A painting has a soul. Original art brings personality to your home with something unique you will treasure for years to come.

Paintings are the ultimate challenge and reward – searching for something different each time. I begin intuitively, with a loose intention in mind, adjusting the composition as I respond to the paint.

At some point there will be a moment where the painting starts to make suggestions and I have to ‘catch’ the clues it’s giving me as each painting develops its own unique history.

Towards the end the pace slows; changes become more considered and the colours become more refined. I’m mindful to keep taking daring risks right until the end so the painting keeps that feeling of energy.

Today’s online world can be fast moving and slick and a painting gives a tactile experience and depth which makes owning art a really rewarding experience – do keep in touch if you’d like to see new work.

Over the last ten years my studio practice has developed, crossing an experimental approach from time spent printmaking with a considered way of using colour and materials.

My paintings are now owned across the world, and have been featured in book designs, photoshoots for top designers like Zoffany and appeared on the cover of Ideal Home magazine.  My work has been shown by The Royal Society of Painter Printmakers, The Society of Women Artists and shortlisted by The Royal Academy.

I co-host the Art Juice podcast, now with 4 million downloads and has reached no.1 in iTunes and is listened to by thousands each week. My membership club; The Connected Artist, supports artists who want to build a sustaining creative practice.
