Current happenings in my studio...

Made a fair few smaller paintings recently, which is always an interesting challenge for me. So, in light of thier completion, it sure feels good to go home to big painting.

There are 4 on the go at the moment. I am experimenting more and more with allowing the shape of the canvas to inform the content, and with the involvement of negative space coming into play around the canvas.

Works in progress...

 Precarious storage solutions foreverrr...

Lantern is an exhibition currently in Soup Kitchen, Manchester.

Lots of talented individuals involved in this one. My lantern is based on a Morroccan lamp of mine and also the design of a Cathedral I visited in Casablanca.

Details of my paintings can be seen through the papercut windows.

An alternative way of presenting my work and I love an excuse to get the craft knives out...

'Everythingism' was the title I gave to my exhibition at VaultNQ, Manchester recently. It is a term which acknowledges the broad collection of influences that feed into my work. 

I am keen to see my work displayed in different settings as I am concerned with how the space around the canvas affects the work, and vice versa. VaultNQ provided an aesthetically interesting backdrop to my paintings, between its tiled or wooden paneled walls. I also learnt how hard it is to drill through grouting/ceramic tiles.

 This was my helpful viewers guide to finding the titles for each piece.

Thank you again to all who came, glad you enjoyed xx
