I am concerned with the aesthetic quality of paint, mark making, the materiality of paint on the surface of the canvas.
I use the formalism of the still life as spaces to investigate self and identity.
In my still life work I have a longstanding relationship with the peony flower. I work with my flowers from their first coy blooming though to decay. For me flowers become more beautiful as their petals become translucent in death – leaving a ‘shroud’ of richly hued stems and petals that are both intense and fragile.
I have works in private collections in the UK, USA, France, Israel and Ireland
