I paint food, science icons and abstract imagery. I search for compositions that resonate with the world and paint them from memory and the imagination. This is assisted with chance procedures, sketches and experimental juxtapositions.
Having run a public art company, Artmongers, for eight years, I have returned to my full time studio practice and am now exhibiting in a pop-up gallery space I have set up with a colleague.
