Artist information

painting
Primarily a figurative painter, I am fascinated by unexplored identities, unlived lives and roads not taken. My work captures the idea of other possibilities, other roles, other potential stories that we might have been part of.
People stepping momentarily into ‘other’ lives to play with their images and identities, together with the artefacts that mark our progress through life – photographs, clothes, shoes – all interest me. Working in oil and acrylic, experimenting with different painterly languages and materials (often including transfer) I ask questions about our sexual, social and emotional lives via a cocktail of nostalgia, confrontation, pleasure and seduction.
