I approach my work as a spiritual exercise, a contemplative practice through which I seek a deeper understanding of myself, and my place in the world. Whilst my practice references a diverse range of historical influences including Neolithic carvings, Byzantine icons and Chinese painting, I seek to make work that is an authentic, soulful response to living now.
I trained in Fine Art at Reading University (BA) and Birmingham City University (MA) and have since exhibited widely, showing my work in public and private galleries and in sacred spaces of all kinds. I am also an experienced art educator, teaching across all phases in formal and informal settings, including galleries. Currently I work as a freelance artist, and as an Associate Teaching Fellow at the University of Warwick.
