Mixed Media
This artist is open to commissions.
I am a Sheffield based artist interested in inviting a conversation between my art and the viewer, whether it be through a drawing of a seemingly everyday street scene, a surreal collage, or an abstract painting.​ ​ Through painting I am interested in creating spaces that invite the viewer to participate in a dialogue, developing their own relationship with the work. I like to create suggestions of narrative but enjoy the ambiguous nature and the individual interpretations and dialogue that result. Many of my abstract paintings explore themes of memory and a sense of place. Whilst my paintings remain abstract I am very much inspired by my surroundings, particularly change in people, place and architecture. I often draw on location as research and to practice capturing a sense of the place and my surroundings through observational drawing. This intuitive and connected approach translates to my abstract work. I apply underlying hints of form and structure as I work towards capturing a sense, a feeling, or an unvisited memory.​On first appearance my work can be quite varied as I work across a range of media from collage, to drawings, to abstract paintings. Underlying all strands there is an ambiguity and a sense of time and place which hopefully invites the viewer to engage, and poses more questions than answers.
