About

Artist Statement

I am interested in the interaction between manmade environments and the impact that outside natural factors can have on a composition. Whether it is the portrayal of specific locations on the move such as airports or railway stations, or the more mundane representations of an interior- I continually search for structures around me that grasp me, and for ones that I and can take and develop into an intriguing artwork that contains both a personal and relatable response to our modern world. Of course, we do not exist in a vacuum. Artists such as Edward Hopper and Richard Diebenkorn have been immensely influential in the development of my work, as have more contemporary artists- American painter Ben Aronson amongst others. Hopper’s proverb, “if you can say it in words, then there’s no reason to paint it”, forms a principal part of my attitude towards the uniquely communicative purpose of art.
