About

Having drawn and painted my whole life, I went on to graduate Falmouth University with a BA(Hons) Degree in Fine Art in 2017 and have recently relocated to North Norfolk where I grew up.

My practice involves capturing the essence of a person within a momentary shot, a fleeting moment in time, I aim to show the interior thought and emotion of a person through a painting.

Instinctively, I see skin tones and flesh with rich, exaggerated colours and tones. This inspires me to work with the movement and application of oil paint to create vast intense portraits. I am specifically drawn to pinks, reds and oranges giving the sensation of heat and connoting life. Focusing on the eyes within my work and the power they hold, I create a personal and raw emotional connection between the stripped back subject and the viewer. My aim is to bring an honesty to the subject, not merely a visceral, visual truth, but the entirety of my subject captured in a moment.
