I predominantly work in the medium of Watercolour and gouache. I specialise in still life paintings, which I believe to be a portal to perception through our everyday objects.

My work is based upon narrative, a memory, a moment. Through connecting lattices of pattern, conflicting borders and contrasting perspectives, I invite the viewer to contemplatetheir reality. Inspired by the great Expressionists I reflect on the curious way in which we have selected colours to bring into our homes, like birds making a colourful nest. I ponder how hoarded objects harbour meaning and in sharing these personal moments, I suggest that the viewer find the extraordinary in their own.

My current practice focuses on composing fluidity between objects, space, and pattern. In a culture of frantic distraction, I am telling the story of a gentle life seeped in ritual meaning. The paint I use is water soluble, making a final comment on the transitionary status of the seasons and our own experiences.
