Painting

I graduated from Nottingham Trent University Fine Art course in 2007 and somehow I’ve been lucky enough to have had a studio and maintained a creative practice ever since. Nowadays my focus is on painting but in the past, I’ve exhibited site specific installations and sculptures too. Once upon a time I also had the pleasure of being a member of the artist collective Tether in Nottingham between 2009-2012. My paintings are predominantly geometric explorations in colour and pattern that have aspirations of achieving the sense of peace and tranquillity that you might find in the work of Agnes Martin or resonate with harmonic vibrations like a painting by Bridget Riley.
