I make figurative paintings and drawings on canvas, panel and paper. I'm interested in exploring the human condition through my work, in particular themes of alienation, detachment, and loneliness in a digitally interconnected 21st century.

An expressive and direct approach to mark making is central to my process - drawing doesn’t end once the painting starts but happens throughout, at times by way of scraping and scoring the surface with saw blades and old hand tools.
