Isle of Wight

I've recently completed a studio residency with Quay Arts that ended in my first major exhibition, Line & Shade, in the West Gallery. There are three main strands to my work:

Abstract oil paintings exploring colour and motion.
Digital drawings with ritualised mark-making.
Graphic novels.

In 2013, I was a featured artist in ArtReview magazine. My book, The Lengths, based on interviews with sex workers in London has been published in the UK by Soaring Penguin Press and in German (as Wie Weit) by Zwerchfell Verlag.

I'm one of the artists in residence with Quay Arts on the Isle of Wight. I'm the creator of the graphic novels, The Lengths and Badger's Day Out. I also work in oil paint and drawing, both using both traditional and digital. Commission enquiries welcome.
