Artist  statement

Painting is in my blood. My mother and her mother and my grandfather were all painters.  However it was only after I studied Drama at Manchester University that I returned to painting and more recently printing

I have lived most of my adult life inBrixton in south east London, an area that has experienced huge change over the last decade. A number of my pictures reflect the colour and  vibrancy for which this area is known

I work in  a variety of mediums including pastel , water colour gouache, and   linocut prints.

Recurring motifs  in my work are spirituality, locality and the use of colour 

 I see painting as a form of exploration and experimentation, this  is  what makes the process
