I am a full time studio based fine artist, my work explores beauty, femininity, love, passion and a sense of self. The inspiration comes from memories, life experiences, dreams and by taping into the stream of artwork from across the ages.
I aspire to have a distinctive style, my work has been said to be instantly recognisable, even when exploring new techniques and materials. I tend to an idiosyncratic colour pallet of blues, turquoises and violet hues, mixed with monochrome styles. I am to create exciting unconventional pieces for the contemporary art market.
Having sold 300+ original paintings via online platforms and physical exhibitions, both nationally and internationally, you can be sure you are viewing work by an experienced art practitioner.
Each ORIGINAL piece arrives with a hand written, wax sealed parchment, which serves as provenance for the artwork.
Please browse the Gallery and Shop to find a piece of original art which speaks to you.

A little more about me.
I live in the North East of England, close to the picturesque North Yorkshire Moors and works from my studio in Middlesbrough as part of the Gilkes Street artists studio group.
My work is driven by the desire to create work which pushes the boundaries of my own art practice, to constantly strive to make innovative work, but also from the desire to create work which the public appreciate and pieces which people who have never before considered buying a piece of original art would love to own, to enjoy and love, or just to keep looking at and feel inspired by.
Since completing my arts education, gaining both a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Art and a Masters Degree in Fine art, I have exhibited both nationally and locally. including solo exhibitions and group shows, both commercial and gallery settings, also many commercial and private commissions. Including a commission for Director and Screen Writer Joss Whedon, this came about as part of my last Kickstarter Exhibition Project.
Exploring both figurative ideas and 'the surface, through various mediums, using both representational and abstract art. Throughout my career my art practice has explored many media, always with a foundation in observation, drawing and mark making, my practice has explored painting, inked work, sculpture, installation and site specific work.
