Straw into Gold
2020 Acrylics, straw and mixed media on canvas 60 x 60 cm I seek for an element of beauty in my work and for the point of entry to be intriguing to evoke an emotion in people. My painting Straw into Gold has sprinkles of gold glitter that blanket the thick layers of straw and glisten in the light. The prussian blue sky is met with iridescent teal highlights created by painting on top of gold leaf to create a sense of magic and wonder. The title Straw into Gold is a reference to my favourite childhood fairy tale Rumpelstiltskin, as it mirrors my process of making work which feels much like turning “straw into gold” as I strive to give new meaning to collected, reclaimed and salvaged items. The composition of the straw has been deliberately designed to encompass the canvas and go wildly beyond the edges to capture the boundless and infinite power of nature. Framed: 64.5 x 64.5

The Ruining of your Splendour
2018 Oil, straw, dry roses, glass, crystals & mixed media on birch Plywood 43 x 63 cm My painting The Ruining of your Splendour was a reaction to the waste and disregard I was seeing on my walks where I live in West London. Where I saw beauty - there was also a ruining. I’ve used a darker pallet to echo my concern for self-destruction, environmental destruction, and to confront the tension between the natural world and the suffering of other life forms from human errors. I have embedded crystals and diamond dust in between layers of straw which glint in the light. This interplay of light and dark, soft and hard is also expressed through the contrast of red petals against rough straw textures and glass shards. There is beauty and yet there is also pain and violence. The straw has been deliberately composed to dominate the surface as I want my imagined landscapes to remain celebratory in Mother Nature and to voice the boundless and infinite power of nature.
Acrylics and mixed-media on Canvas. 95 x 66 cm My painting Ruminate is an energetic and wild landscape. I have used a pallet knife to create erratic and organic formation. The use of thick impasto allowed me to exaggerate the movement of the marks and give depth to the canvas and a feeling of heaviness. The organic forms dominate the canvas, I want the viewer to explore, to ruminate on every mark and detail and become present of their own sentience of the Natural world. My desire to construct magical and fantastical imagery stems from my own fear of a world that is increasingly becoming mechanical.
The Depths of Abandonment
2018 Acrylics and mixed-media on Canvas. 79.7 x 53 x 4 cm My industrial surroundings draw me closer to create works rooted in nature and to seek for an element of beauty and for the point of entry to be intriguing to evoke an emotion in people. My painting The Depths of Abandonment carries a bleak vision with a sense of loneliness and forsakenness but remains celebratory in the power of Mother Nature and its infinite power. I’ve used a darker pallet to echo my concern for self-destruction, environmental destruction, and to confront the tension between the natural world and the suffering of other life forms from human errors. The composition of the lake and the reflections in the water render a sense of depth to draw the viewer's eye into the centre of the painting. The title further invites the viewer to become present of their own sentience of the natural world and notions around abandonment.

Private Collection, Amsterdam 2018 My Painting was inspired by my walk in Northala Fields Park, an award winning green space located in Northolt, Greater London. My industrial surroundings draw me closer to create works rooted in nature. Northala Fields is a popular spot people use to go for walks, watch the sunset, go fishing and for picnics. It's a green space I treasure. Northala Fields Park opened in 2008 and consists of four artificial hills standing next to the A40 Western Avenue, The name "Northala" is how the old manor of Northall (Northolt) was recorded in the Domesday Book in 1086. It is situated on what was the Royal Borough of Kensington Playing Fields after being leased to them in 1938. The section of the Ealing Road that formed the eastern perimeter was then renamed Kensington Road. My painting captures a day there was a light breeze. I used my camera to photograph the dry grass and plants on the hills. I have used birch plywood as the the surface to paint on. It allowed me to apply a thick texture of oil-paint and a stronger surface to use the desired mark-making and brushstrokes I needed. My intention was to capture a moment, but also a feeling of being close to nature.
