Private and commercial commissions are welcome.


I work with various media, flitting between illustrative drawing and pure abstract expression.  For me, painting is a process of recollection and reflection, a solitary activity, an attempt to make sense of my experiences. 

Each painting is the result of many layers of paint, some are concealed, others graspable. 

Weaving various imagery, I strive to create interlocking forms that represent connections between time, places and people.  


I work from my home studio in Torfaen, South Wales, U.K.
