I am a London based artist currently working in watercolour. Having lived in Indonesia and New Orleans, I have developed an appreciation for other cultures which I include in my work.
Inherently a city person, this is where I am the happiest so it is no surprise that I have focused my lens on ‘urban life’. My work illustrates the city as a living, breathing thing in all its grot and glory by exploring its buildings, streets and people.
By including figures in my work, I present a window into the lives of strangers. I attempt to lure the on-looker in and ask them to wonder about the interactions in the scene and to be curious about the lives of these individuals.
I am interested in history and tie the past to the present by referencing historical moments and individuals, commenting on the importance of looking back and to consider how our past continues to shape and influence us. Finally, my work seeks to record our current history, a snap-shot of contemporary urban culture.
Recent success includes being shortlisted for RA Summer Exhibition 2019, finalist for Sunday Times Watercolour Competition 2019 and shortlisted for Secret Art Prize 2018.
