About me


My current body of work is named “The Unseen Soul” I have been concentrating on the rules and limitations of the human soul and frustrations felt throughout life, the desire to be a part of something and social constructs we use to transgress through life.

I am interested in the other. Taking a somewhat voyeuristic approach to the subject, I like to question what the viewer is seeing and what indeed the viewer actually sees. The discourse between the viewed and viewer.

I use a range of mixed media, ink, watercolour, acrylic and oil. And in some of my pieces I use hair within the process.

I work intuitively, only remembering what I’ve seen to instruct and guide my process. I like to work knowingly through my subconscious and describe a notion I have felt. Emotional clarity plays a large part in my processes and feel that I work best with music that can establish a memory, time or place. 



2016 Finalist on “The Big Painting Challenge’ BBC One


I currently live and work in Northern Ireland. I have a very happy home life and spend a lot of time out on family days. I play hockey in my spare time but try and get into the studio as much as possible.
