I grew up living next to the rugged coastline of St Ives. Creating art has always been a way to express myself. Time spent observing and immersing myself in this wild and raw environment has nurtured my need to create and express. I use acrylics and at times mixed media to record my response to what I see and feel. My life experiences have enriched my process and work practice, driving me to produce expressive and evocative paintings. Shortlisted for The Evening Standard Art Prize.
