Born and brought up in rural South Africa, I now live and work as a contemporary painter in North Norfolk.
I developed a love of the arts from an early age and after graduating from university in Newcastle, I went to live in Rome for 3 years where I sold artworks and worked as an assistant to a professional sculptor.
In 2009 I returned to the UK to do an MA in Fine Art at the Norwich University of the Arts, where I was awarded a distinction.
I have been painting in oils since 2020 and have a particular interest in landscapes. My rural upbringing instilled in me a great love of nature and rural spaces and this is reflected in my work. My painting is rooted in traditional techniques and utilises contemporary mark making, combining it with a love of textural brushwork with a particular interest in light and atmosphere.
I have exhibited at The Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts and at The Peterborough Museum and Art Gallery. As well as being selected as The Axis MAstar 2011, I received a special commendation in The Bishops art Prize. My work is in private collections around the world.
