Artist Statement

I began painting at the age of 10 and had work in a gallery by the time I was 14. When leaving art college I was chosen by 'Sweet Waters Gallery' in Edgeware, London to exhibit with them and consequently exhibited at various venues such as the Business Design Centre in Islinton 1991 and the Sophia Arts Fair in Bulgaria. I was very humbled and priviledged to exhibit at the Business Design Centre with Walter Nessler. After that I had very unfortunate personal problems and had to focus on them. During that time the gallery closed down and I lost touch with the art world. I then had to move away from London and have now been working and exhibiting my art again on the coast in Essex, UK. Despite describing myself as a painter, I now work in mixed media to portray various styles and genres. My work was previously figurative but has now evolved more into abstract, Dada and sometimes surrealism. I studied art at Camberwell Art College and trained to teach art at Goldsmiths College.

Often I am Inspired by investigating my psyche and the unconscious through my art. Carl Jung and his writings, thoughts and philosophies on the psyche particularly interest me. My aim is to engage with the spiritual, through my art. The intention ...
