Mixed-media Fine Artist

"Italo Calvino in his book 'Invisible Cities' said "The city does not tell us its past, but contains it like the lines of a hand, written in the corner of the streets, the gratings of the windows, the banisters of the steps, every segment marked in turn." I am an ardent observer of the built environment, I gather visual inspiration daily through my travels at home and abroad. Modern structures fill a city skyline with gleaming surfaces reflecting shards of urban promise as declarations of growth and financial success. While in back streets and forgotten neighbourhoods derelict walls become textural tapestries, interfered with signs and fragments of faded posters are varnished with a film of daily life, bearing witness to the effects of weather and the passage of time. These disparate environments speak volumes about a place, they tell of past lives, present circumstances and hopes for the future. These visual inspirations are combined with my interest in current affairs; income disparities, education and social justice; urban expansion and it's impact on the environment; age, gender or race related issues; these are just some of the themes that run throughout my work."
