About

About:

(B.1983) Surrey, UK

I’m an Impressionist, working from observation with a saturated palette on themes of Fragility and Solitude. My work pivots on the nature of perception and the human condition, in relation to the world around us. Primary mediums are Oil, Egg Tempera and Graphite.

Studied Observational Drawing and Painting under Anastasia Pollard, Luca Indraccolo and Giles Lester
