I am an artist, illustrator and designer who enjoys working across a variety of media, from paintings and intricate pen and ink drawings to pencil and digital works. An admirer of magic realism I use a predominantly figurative style that combines elements of the fantastical and bizarre to create strange narratives and unexplained scenarios.
Current interests and explorations draw on traditional elements of the English experience and references themes of ‘folk horror’. Ever present influences include Kahlo and the Mexican muralists, the artists of the Neue Sachlichkei, Klimt, Gauguin and above all others, Schiele.
I live and work in North Yorkshire.
