About the Artist

Underpinning my art is an exploration of beauty and its relationship to truth. My research explores the process used to construct artificial space on a flat surface.  I’m interested in the tension between the figurative artists desire to create truth and a process that requires abstraction, simplification and subjective judgement.

My primary focus has been portrait art, but this year I have extended my practice to include a plein air landscape component. My aim is to bridge my two practices and create a body of work that explores the figure in landscape.

In 2017 I completed 4 years of study at the private art school, Syn Studio. My interest in figurative art took me to New York in 2017 where I was invited on a scholarship to participate in a month long workshop at the Grand Central Atelier. My work has shown across North America. Most recently it was selected as part of the TD Wealth – Thor Wealth Management Art Prize and the Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series.
