St Leonards- on - Sea
As a former member of the band Elastica and having achieved more than I could have anticipated in music, in 2010 I made the decision to begin a long overdue degree in fine art (I graduated from Brighton University with a first class honour’s degree).
Evoking memory, I ask the viewer to engage in the bold colours and imagery of play and having fun, suggesting that these colours, shapes and patterns can mean so much more than they are.
I find inspiration in the stark urban geometry of Brutalist architecture, concrete bunkers and the brightly coloured building blocks of childhood along with the ‘cut outs’ of Matisse and a new found passion in exotic plants.
I live in St Leonards with my husband and our dog and together we share a space at Compendium Studios in the town.
