Artist bio

Painting usually involves applying wet medium to a support where it dries and where it remains. My paintings behave in a less expected way. I paint on substrates that allow for the subsequent total removal of the painting. I then exploit the flexibility inherent in the dried material through cutting, layering and weaving. Doing this gives me the choice of which side of the paint to show which results in works that combine the usually visible with the often hidden.

I was born in the UK, settling in Australia in 2005 after spending the previous 17 years moving internationally many times. My life has been a patchwork of cultures and this plays out in my desire to fragment my work. I seem incapable of seeing a painting as finished until it has been deconstructed and remade in various ways. I hold a BFA (Sculpture and Painting). My artworks are held in private collections in Australia, the UK, the USA, Sweden, Italy and Canada.

I am different to most artists because...

When the paint is dry my work is just beginning.

When you look at my art, the thing I want you to feel is...


The thing I most want to say to non-artists is...

A painting can take many forms.
