Oil and mixed medium , 30 x 40 , 2017, $2400
I am a process artist, predominantly painting with oils on canvas. My work is generated in response to the materials that I use and the techniques and processes that I have developed. Imperfection and disrespect for convention is primary.
I seem to be drawn to making abstracted landscapes, referencing a combination of grid work, topological and vertical imagery. Cityscapes, urban or fanatic landscapes evolve with a rich vocabulary of mark making, and embedded history of texture and surface.
I was born and educated in England, and I have lived on the Eastside of Seattle since 2001.
I consider myself a lifelong artist, and from an early age I surrounded myself with art making. My mother and grandmother were both artists, their skills were often put to use in a more practical and domestic environment, but their approach to life instilled in me creative possibilities in everyday objects and situations.
I gained qualifications in Civil Engineering, but my passion has always been for the arts, alongside community based arts interactions.
