Four years ago I eBayed my belongings, left city life in the UK and headed to Alderney, a remote tiny Channel island, where I started to paint.

My unique surroundings and exploration of the coast provide my inspiration. Sea, storms and coastal textures are suggested in my multi-layered abstract paintings.

In 2017 my work was shortlisted for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, London.

I also had a solo exhibition at the 'CCA' Jersey's premier gallery alongside works by Damien Hirst, Sir Peter Blake and John Hoyland.
