My work explores nature and it's pervasive place in the urban landscape. Soft edges, hard lines, organic shapes and deliberate forms all inform this idea of organic amongst the structured. By exploring the application of the paint on the canvas, board or panel, the act of deliberate mark making dictates the progression of the piece.

What kind of artwork do you have in your home?

I have a lot of work by artists I know personally. I love prints, but one of my favourites is a street art piece I got in Cleveland of a green bird

Describe the person your work appeals to in 3 words

Why is it important for people to have art in their home or life?
