I am a painter. I draw inspiration and ideas from aspects of the natural world which unsettle me. I also revisit my childhood obsession with horror films. Spanish, Italian, and Flemish portraitists of the Renaissance, and the religious works of the pre Renaissance period, are frequent sources of inspiration, too. I also make collages, and use pen-and-ink as a way of exploring new ideas and informing subsequent painting projects.
