My paintings are lush and colourful landscapes that exist as part of a fantastical, re-imagined place and as an amalgamation of references to the history of landscape painting.

The surface joyousness is tempered by an uneasy sense of abandonment.

    Biography

    My paintings are lush and colourful landscapes that exist as part of a fantastical, re-imagined place and as an amalgamation of references to the history of landscape painting. I have applied a hyper, rose-tinted view of the world and my vision is of a place and time untouched; it is wild, rampant and ripe almost to the point of rotten. The surface joyousness is tempered by an uneasy sense of abandonment. These paintings are themselves fetishized; the layered resin has an extreme high gloss finish, akin to stained glass and similarly the paintings are abundant with light-giving colour.
