My Paintings are mainly about the paint, the manual application of the
actual substance.

The process of painting, the physicality of it is
fundamental to my practise.

Through commissions, workshops, school work, art fairs and exhibitions I aim to promote my work to a larger audience and challenge the ‘ikea’ buying public to engage with original pieces of art without damaging it’s ‘high art’ appeal.
