I am a London based mixed media artist however my inspirations remain quite wild. I grew up on a rugged sheep farm on Dartmoor with lots of brothers and sisters and a menagerie of animals. Bizarrely with life's twists and turns I now find myself using wool as my preferred artistic medium of choice.
Wool has unique properties like no other art medium, amazing vibrancy, texture and depth. It provides a very raw emotional feeling to landscape and a sense of aliveness to my bird portraits. I am also experimenting with abstract work and music improvisation on the piano exploring streams of consciousness versus deliberate intervention. It makes for a fascinating journey.
Recently shortlisted for the National Open Art Prize, my work is exhibited widely across the UK and is held in private collections at home and abroad.
