Extended Bio
My fine art practice responds to the rhythms of meditation and ancient tree tea ceremony which has become a fundamental companion to my creative approach. Working from my studio in Rattery my imagination channels through quiet reflection. Guided by direct somatic experience my work tends to be instinctive and intuitive, each piece an automatic process of self enquiry. Working with oil on canvas or gouache on paper, I work swiftly keeping the energy fresh and live. My work is suffused with my spiritual practice and a liminal quality, a sense of in-betweenness with recurring primordial themes. Influences of shamanism, rock art, ancient clay models and pottery are channeled throughout the collections, which celebrate the power of basic human emotion in simple forms. In 2017 - Shortlisted for 3 Brighton Artists Open House Awards, winning Best Newcomer In 2018 - HERD was selected by Grayson Perry for the Royal Academy’s 250th Summer Exhibition, where it appeared in his hand-curated Yellow Room In 2019 - Won Best Artists Open House award 2023 - Ukrainian fashion label collaboration, My Sleeping Gypsy, creating the MIGRATION collection of traditional vyshyvanka dresses I am represented by Objet Trouve in Alfriston, East Sussex, and Whitespace Art in Totnes.
