My work captures the movement and energy of the human form. With a background in fashion illustration, I tend to exaggerate poses so that the most interesting shapes dominate. I find the human form, both clothed and nude, endlessly fascinating. My art work is held in private collections throughout the world, including Hong Kong, the USA, Canada, Australia and Italy. I am inspired by the bold and energetic work of Matisse, Picasso, and countless contemporary fashion illustrators. To get more of a feel for my inspiration, take a look at my Pinterest. I am happy to receive requests for custom art works to suit your décor and taste.

My current series of nude cut-outs was initially inspired by Matisse’s Blue Nudes. To achieve the vibrant colours, I mix acrylic paint and apply the block colour to paper. Working directly from live models and photographs, I cut the coloured paper with a scalpel without any preliminary drawings. I love this way of drawing because it forces me to simplify and exaggerate the pose.

The bold figures look stunning when framed simply. Many are standard sizes which can easily be framed in a high street frame. Ikea’s Ribba series of frames, which include mats, are ideal.

You can buy my work by email request or from my Etsy shop.
