Having grown up on the island of Jersey and very much being part of the beach and music culture on the island, my love of nature has influenced me as I look to express our connection with the "whole" a definite spiritual element as I use abstract art and music to encourage the viewer/listener to examine how they feel and go within themselves, meet “The Observer” rather than distract them with a specific focus within the work itself.
I moved to London in 2009 and in 2013 I attended classes held by artist Nick Malone in his studio https://www.londonartclasses.com/ where I soon found a hidden talent to express myself through my art, he encouraged me to study the likes of Bacon, Dali and Kandinsky as well as Turner but hope I am very much expressing my own style in my work.
Working mostly now with Acrylic on Canvas I enjoy connecting directly with the art where ever possible by painting with my hands, the connection of self with the paint and canvas I feel brings out the depth of work I am trying to express, of course brushes, sponges and cloths all come into creating a piece too.
In 2015 I released my first EP “Soulsearch” being an aspiring Guitarist/Singer Songwriter – my acclaim to fame the EP reached the Top 10 in the Reverbnation Folk charts, along with an Akademia Award for "Best Folk EP Nov 2015"
Now in 2017 I decided a move back to the coast was needed and have just arrived in Boscombe, Bournemouth on the South Coast of England. A great believer in the synchronicity of life I soon found a fantastic creative community in the area and have joined the fun at The Factory Studios (http://www.factorystudios.co.uk/). I look forward to expanding my creativity and working within the community. New directions in art and music as I hope to record more on site and send out some acoustic sets.
