I spent the first few years of my work life with racehorses – as stable lad; assistant trainer and jockey, working in the UK; Ireland; Australia and the USA.
When I chose art as my career path, I studied initially at The Slade summer school, and then at The Cambridge Art School (BA Hons Fine Art), where I achieved a first class degree, and was awarded the Fine Art Prize in my year group for my degree show.
My work has since been exhibited in solo and shared exhibitions across the UK and Europe, and appears in private and public collections across the UK, Europe, America, Australia and Saudi Arabia.
My personal interest relates to the layers of life and experience that makes each of us who we are. We typically show the outside layer of our being which, although it may bear some of the physical signs of things we have experienced, will not reveal how we felt about the ways in which we have experienced ‘being’.
The same thing can be experienced by different people in different ways. So it is the suggestion of what happens inside that interests me.
I approach my work exploring the ways in which I can reflect these ideas. I have come to making most of my work in layers. I want my work to change as the angle of view changes, and as the context that they are placed in changes, in the same way that we can change according to our state of mind, and who we are with.
