ABOUT ME

Originally from England, I settled in the US after completing my graduate studies in psychology at Rutgers in New Jersey. I moved with my family to North Carolina in 2004 and have lived here since.

I returned to art making about two years ago as a way to process loss. I began with simple charcoal portraits and transitioned into digital “painting” with a focus on using vibrant color and silhouette to explore character and identity. Recently, I started working in acrylic on paper and have also combined the analog with the digital to create abstract portraits. 

Another constant in my work is portraits of my sons, now young adults. Drawing and painting them is a celebration of love and a way to stay connected to them as they develop their own independent lives.

BIOGRAPHY
TECHNIQUE

My current practice starts with black acrylic paint on watercolor paper, applied with a brush, palette knife or pouring, often in response to music. I then import these loose abstract images into procreate and impose some form and add color to construct a portrait.
