— About me, social media, and how to get in touch
I am a London born artist making figurative expressionist paintings from life. Using a variety of mark making techniques and rapid brush strokes - my aim is to express the movement and lyrical quality of my subjects.
My fascination in capturing movement stems from the belief that everything we encounter around us has a vibrational energy, and has therefore always been the driving force behind my work. In this respect I began the first 10 years of my career making short stop-frame animation films, before venturing to Mexico to develop my work as a painter between 2005-11. In Mexico I settled in Oaxaca and began selling my paintings in the street, which resulted in a solo exhibition “Momentos Musicales” at the “Museo del Palacio” in Oaxaca City.
Since returning to London I've shown in several group and solo exhibitions, shortlisted twice for the National Open Art competition (2014 and 2016) and recently exhibited at the Cello Factory for The 83rd London Group Open, November 2017. I have also been awarded this years New English Artist Club Drawing Scholarship 2018-19.
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 his neighbour-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.
