My Work
My paintings and photographs reflect the many factors which have influenced my work, including travel, archaeology, changes in society and a love of nature and landscape. My work often explores classical and religious references and frequently makes use of the idea of palimpsest in its broadest sense. Colourful expressionism is an important part of my art.

Biography and CV

I was brought up in Zambia, studied Classics and Education at St. Mary’s University in London, and later graduated from Sheffield Hallam University with a B.A. Honours in Fine Art. As teacher and artist, my interests have often overlapped. I have had several solo exhibitions, and have also exhibited at the Mall Galleries in London in 2013 and 2014, and the Galerie Metanoia in Paris, 2015 and 2016, when I was awarded the Prix Monte Dei Fiori for my paintings. In 2017,I was involved in two exhibitions in Athens. The Stimulus exhibition was then transferred to the Menier Gallery in London in August, 2017.
In 2018, my paintings have been shown in Paris, London, Athens, Birmingham and Sheffield, as can be seen below on my CV. I have also been part of the Battersea Park and Hampstead Heath Affordable Art Fairs in London this year. My work has been displayed in Sheffield Galleries
and other galleries in Yorkshire.

My studio is at Exchange Place in Sheffield. It is part of Yorkshire Artspace.
