"Florals in particular allow me to engage with colour, light and structure in a wonderful way."
"My compositions are rooted in a reverence for places and nature, during the ever changing seasons. Florals in particular allow me to engage with colour, light and structure in a wonderful way. Ephemeral in their nature, they give me the unique opportunity to play with the boundaries of time and movement.
In addition to my love of florals, I also feel a profound emotional and artistic attachment to the Wiltshire landscape around my childhood home. I attempt to capture the essence of a flower or a landscape through intense observation, experimentation with scale, and nuanced use of line and colour. I approach the anatomy of an object - a flower, in much the same way as I would a human form, emphasising its planes and contours."
