    Painter, graduated in 2006 from Wimbledon College of Art, London.

    The paintings start from an intuition of an image, inspired by something real. However, I am not interested in narrative or representation but instead by formal construction. There are no set criteria regarding the initial impetus, which can range from the structure of a building to the pattern on a piece of cloth. What is essential is that I get excited about the concept of making the painting. I do not attempt pretty paintings, but rousing, oddly arresting ones that through a fine balance of offbeat formal oddities seduce the viewer into pondering the fundamental process and semiotics of painting.
