Welcome to my website!
I'm a British artist who has worked internationally before returning to the U.K in 2014. I now live and work in Cardiff. My main focus is sculpture, painting and installation, working in a somewhat eclectic range of media. I also have experience of set design for theatre.
Since opening my Cardiff studio, 'Me Art Space', I have focused mainly on sculpture; click on 'New work' to view some of my latest pieces. I am also about to embark on some new glass installations - jellyfish and more! However, I am still a keen painter and you can see some of my work under 'Paintings'.
The past few years have been rewarding with several group exhibitions, including: 'Art Central Gallery', Barry, 'Llanover Hall', Cardiff, 'Off The Wall Gallery', Cardiff and a solo exhibition at one of Cardiff's premier galleries 'Boundary Arts', in Cardiff Bay. I have exhibited in several prominent group exhibitions. I was also thrilled to be invited to exhibit in one of the most prestigious marine art exhibitions in the U.K - the Royal Society of Marine Artists Annual Exhibition 2018, at Mall Galleries, London, 11 to 20 October, 2018.
I plan to hold a series of sculpture and painting workshops in the summer of 2020 at my studio in Cardiff. Please watch this space.
UPDATE: Sadly, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, these workshops have been cancelled for the foreseeable future. I hope to be able to initiate something in 2021.
My work has been influenced by the experience of working and exhibiting in such culturally diverse places as:- Prague, Skopje, Lublijana, Venice, and, more recently, Ankara. For example:-
In Prague, I had a solo installation 'Chrysalis' at Gucci, central Prague. In Macedonia, I participated in numerous group exhibitions with artist like Reshat Ameti, Adem Kastrati, Osman Demiri and Maria Pavlovska. I was invited to exhibit in the 'I And The Other' exhibition, 2001, at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Skopje. This brought together artists from all ethnic backgrounds in a celebration of unity following the event of the Kosovo war and Macedonia's own internal conflict. My work, 'Force of Anger' became part of the gallery's permanent collection, (view under 'other work' in the menu).
During my time in Slovenia, I was Artist in Residence for a year at the privately owned 'Imprima' Gallery, and a further six months at Gallery Zula. Both galleries were based in central Ljubljana. I exhibited with both local and international artists. I also participated at the annual Artists Retreat at Kranjska Gora along with Alfredo Garcia Andres (Spain) and Noel Gomez (Cuba)
In Venice, I was commissioned by 'English Theatre in Venice' to design and produce stage sets for productions such as Shakespeare's 'Much Ado About Nothing' at Teatro Nuovo on Fondamenta Nuova.
