— About me, social media, and how to get in touch
I am a London born artist making figurative expressionist paintings from life using rapid marks and brush strokes to express the movement and lyrical quality of my subjects.
My fascination in capturing movement and believing that the objects we encounter in our lives have a vibrational energy, has always been the driving force behind my work. In this respect I began the first 10 years of my career as a stop-frame animator, before venturing to Mexico to develop my work between 2005-11. In Mexico I settled in Oaxaca and began selling my paintings in the street, which resulted in an offer of a solo exhibition called “Momentos Musicales” at the “Palacio del Gobierno” in Oaxaca.
Since returning to London I have shown in several group and solo exhibitions and have been shortlisted twice for the National Open Art competition in both 2014 and 2016.
Inspired by artists from the London School such as Frank Auerbach I now find myself coincidentally living and working in the studio that was once inhabited by Leon Kossoff (1950-53) in Mornington Crescent!
My current work explores similar techniques used by the abstract expressionist Jackson Pollock, employing them figuratively, with a view to bringing disused technology back to life as works of art in themselves.
