As an artist I am always excited to explore new themes and take on new projects. Although I experimented with sculpture and film for my Fine Art degree, and it’s an area I am still very interested in, my recent work has been mainly portrait and figurative painting.

A year ago I was lucky enough to receive a commission to paint surfing murals at Baggys Cafe in Croyde, North Devon. It has been a fascinating journey. Through the work and my research, I have gained an insight into the surfing culture and its history. The project is a combination of all the elements I love; portraits, figurative painting and expressing movement.
