About

I'm a Fine Artist and Illustrator with a primary focus on landscape painting. I completed my studies in Fine Art at Loughborough University in 2016 where I practiced oil painting. As an addition to my studies I spent a year in Singapore (2014/15) during which I studied at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts. Here I was introduced to traditional Chinese painting and calligraphy, a theme that now inspires my painting practice. 

I am intrigued by our relationship to the natural landscape and our interaction with our surroundings. Conflicted by the beauty of nature and the human ego I endeavour to explore the sublime power scenery can have over us.

Does standing over a mountain make you feel small in the vast land? Or does it make you feel as though you have conquered the world?
