I am currently a fine artist and an MRES student at university.
I favour the old masters such as Leonardo DaVinci, Botticelli and Caravaggio. I like to cross-reference these with contemporary concepts and the low-brow movement that includes artists such as Mark Ryden, Nicoletta Ceccoli and Camille Rose Garcia. Narrative is always present in my work as I enjoy story telling through a visual nature. I also enjoy mixing traditional paint methods from the old masters with modern styles.
Portraiture has always been my passion, especially eyes which intrigue me greatly. I am very interested in the human condition and exploring ways in which we see and experience life.
I have previously taught GCSE and A level fine art and graphic design at a high achieving school for 8 years. I was also a head of faculty for the ARTS. I gave up my position this year (2017) to pursue my own work and interests in higher education. I am interested in both theory and practice in fine art and would be happy to deliver workshops that encourage the collaboration of this.
