I am interested in paint as a material which, I feel, is quite underrated as a dry rather than wet medium. My art practice is highly experimental and there are always many tests at various stages lying on every available flat surface in my studio. I exploit the flexibility inherent in dried paint using it in a similar way to fabric by cutting, tearing and weaving. Consequently, each work is a result of a lengthy process of creating a number of different paintings which are then deconstructed to form a new whole. Doing this gives me the choice of which side of the dried paint to show resulting in paintings that combine the visible with the usually hidden.

I was born in the UK, settling in Australia in 2005 after spending the previous 17 ears moving internationally 12 times. My life has be a patchwork of cultures and this plays out in my desire to fragment my work.
