Putting physical expression to the ideas, thoughts and images running through my head has been a constant throughout my life. I create wall installations, sculpture-like oil paintings, drawings and other works on paper.

 

My paintings take a long time to create, I glue sticks to canvas then carve each one before applying oils. Each stick becomes completely unique and together they tell the narrative.

 

The works on paper are more immediate - I like to capture the speed at which energy moves - showing that everything is connected by things the human eye cannot see.

With life drawing I'm interested in the energy in each pose and am attracted to bits of the body and the body language. For me those things tell a far more emotive story than the whole figure does when it's placed neatly on a page.
