The St Martin’s Lane Sonata


I am a self taught painter of landscapes, cityscapes, still life, abstract and portraits. Painting is about storytelling, feeling, character and the moment. I’m interested in painting how a place, person or object moves me. I paint about my experiences, about the duality of feelings I have when I revisit a memory or stand in a scene I’m going to paint. It’s like anchors a sails pulling in different direction. And It’s this tension that fascinates me, between displacement and belonging.
I like to work in terms of rhythm and movement, painting in the moment following a preliminary sketch, impulsive layers of paint and scraffito, generally using mixed media oils, pencil, ink and charcoal.

My influences are Maurice Utrillo, Chaim Soutine, Leon Kossoff, Kyffin Williams, Frank Auerbach, amd street graffiti
