About


A London-based fine artist, working with acrylics, textile, print, and sculpture.

I am exploring the concept of artificially imposing structure to organic elements through the extension of tangent lines.

The organic parts of a painting may be shapes drawn from observation, or they may be created through the unstructured use of colour. I then impose a geometric framework onto the image by extending tangent lines out of the corners in the composition. Each piece of work thus results in a tension between the organic and the geometric parts.

My motivation for this work is the idea of creation through constraint, by rules such as physical laws, internal thoughts, and social regulations. I also apply these concepts to my process, by combining intuitive aspects with a strict set of unique rules for the creation of each piece.
