About

I am a Fine Art Painting graduate from the University of Brighton 2017.
My influences are constantly changing and I am currently in the process of a big shift in my artistic practice.

The artists most recent work explores the possibilities of storytelling, inspired and influenced by her childhood experiences of growing up in a rural and isolated town. She draws from memory and imagination and her daily surroundings. From the pictorial language collected, she begins to construct her own imaginary reality, creating narratives that are reminiscent of her childhood but also the experiences she faces as an adult.

​The artist is influenced by Outsider Art in which she creates falsely naïve paintings, avoiding the rules of colour and perspective, working with unrefined hues and keeping certain areas flat in colour.

The narratives created are autobiographical, which are visually playful and humorous. The titles of the works also play an important role in the narrative element of the artists work. These titles are often reminiscent of a memory, experience or feeling which sometimes juxtapose the visual innocence of the paintings.

By not giving too much away the paintings remain ambiguous, leaving the viewer to experience and interpret the narratives in their own way.
