My work is influenced mainly by my career as a graphic artist and the relationship between art and design. Primarily working from life I aim to take a reductive approach to my subject matter, using simple graphic forms and spontaneous mark making to explore my continuous curiosity with colour and space. People, places and objects that I have a connection with are often the starting point for my art. Through close observational drawing my work will often be further developed in the studio, experimenting with a wide variety of different media and referencing art history. By developing these simple ideas I hope to create a shared experience and communicate the simplicity of nature.
