My work, like me, is best described as "fluid". There is constant growth and change. For me, to stand still is to become stagnant. The new possibilities that change and growth allow keep me interested in life.

My work always reflects my state of Being - spiritual, emotional and intellectual. It is a vehicle through which I explore, challenge and express my thoughts and feelings about being alive, human and in this world.

Recent works have taken a more conceptual turn, though they are still expressive in a minimal way. I am interested in exploring creativity and creative potential - or "potential" itself - in its purest form. This, it seems to me, is the mystery at the heart of Art, humanity and our creativity. I seek to bridge the gap between pure possibility  and concrete physical manifestation. I am interested in the creative process itself. By keeping things open and relatively undefined, I aim to keep the works alive to possibility - to keep pure potential alive even as I manifest forms physically.

Recent works may be seen as meditative - a twist on the mandala as much as they are expressive and contemporary art objects.

My work has taken inspiration, in particular, from the artist Giacometti and, more generally, from the Cubists, the Expressionists and the Chinese Scholar-Painters (11th-13th centuries). I trained at Hertfordshire University, am currently on a course of further training with the Turps school of art and, previously, read Social Anthropology at Cambridge University. My work is held in private collections in the UK and the USA. I am based in London.
