1) In your own words describe your unique style and creative aesthetic?
Contemporary impressionism or evocative landscapes. I do not usually intend the paintings to be figurative but they are often given meaning by the viewer’s imagination.
2) When starting a new project, what is your creative process?
I paint completely instinctively there are no rules just turn up at my studio and become engrossed and lost in the process!
3) Out of the creative people you have worked with, who is it that you respect and admire the most?
It has been incredibly exciting to see my work translated into fabrics, wall coverings and cushions. Romo’s design team handled my work so beautifully and respectfully and perfectly captured the colours and textures of the original works so nothing has been lost in translation.
4) When looking for inspiration is there a particular thing you do to get inspired?
I am influenced and inspired by everything around me and everywhere I go, often in the most unexpected places; a crumbling old wall in an alleyway, peeling posters, an old fishing boat washed up on the shore, aeroplane smoke trails in the sky.
5) What has brought you to this point in your career? And what is your advice for people looking to follow in your footsteps?
My love and sheer joy of painting has brought me to this point in my career with a lot of hard work and self-belief too! My advice to any new creative is be true to yourself, keep your integrity and create what you love not what you think will sell.
