My work reflects the urban landscape of my home in North London. I want to show a sense of wonder in the midst of the city. I am struck by the colour of buildings in the sunlight and the way trees have a magnificent presence throughout the year. They are the lungs of our city – with all the noise of life their presence is like a song. I recently travelled to New York and have made a body of work drawing on that experience. Each year I also visit the Scottish Isle of Iona, where the sea and sky meet blue on blue.
I graduated from Central St Martin’s University of the Arts London, in 2006, and did post-graduate studies at the Art Academy, London Bridge in 2016/17. I have exhibited in solo and group shows and have delivered art workshops in Bethlehem, South Africa and Brazil, making my own work around these experiences.
