I am a painter living and working in London. I studied at Central St Martins and Camberwell College of Art and have held a studio since 2004.
My practice as it presently exists is shaped to afford me pure indulgence in painting. It is reduced, cleansed, and focuses on one aim: To enjoy the act as much as possible. This ‘painter’s manifesto’ dictates that I strive to increase those factors that bring pleasure and reduce or remove anything deemed detrimental to enjoyment. Bound by this straightforward, liberating ethos I am able to pursue exactly what I want and ensure that the good feeling derived from making a painting is the critical constant and the defining characteristic running throughout. Construction, process, physicality and the finished object; these materialist aspects have always been most exciting for me and my focus is to indulge them above all others.
