About Me

I am a Yorkshire Artist, whose art practice is re-emerging after a period of recovery after serious illness. I hope to share work both past and present as the journey is intrinsic to where I am today.

About Me
 
Human nature has often inspired me and I have spent several years working with people in different communities of all ages and backgrounds. I am currently looking at Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in relation to my art, both as subject matter and through the process helping me to gain confidence in my work, who I am and being content in life. Studying art at various different establishments has given me the chance to explore different art forms, but more recently I have returned to the tactile/sensory and instinctive process of painting.

As a young child I had difficulty talking but my patient and loving mother filled my life with fun and creative things to do. This has instilled in me a natural connection with art and it has always been such an important and personal part of my life. As I grew into an awkward teenager I learnt how I could use art to express myself, and during my 4D Fine Art degree course at Central Saint Martins, I explored conversation theory.

Although I have explored many different projects, what connects all of my work is my relationship with it. For me, art has a therapeutic, as well as a creative element, expressed primarily through the process of making but also as a powerful tool to communicate with others. My work has evolved as I have, accompanying me through different areas and phases of my life. Alongside these elements, I love to experiment, play and manipulate materials and am driven by a passionate intention to convey my interpretations of reality.
