'I believe in confrontational Art, in Art as witness. Referencing historical,
cultural or political topics,
I try to make work that
evokes an emotional response in the viewer.'
'I have a BA (Hons) Degree in Fine Art and I've been working as a painter for just over 10 years.'
'I have collectors across the UK and Europe and am represented by Kyo Gallery in Washington DC.'
