Transforming mud, paint, graphite, ink, paper and canvas into art has always struck me as a kind of magical alchemy. I look for beauty in the prosaic ordinariness of everyday life and I am hugely inspired by nature. I don't believe art should be propped up with hundreds of words to explain it - it either moves you in some way or it doesn't!
Come see me at studio 312 in the Silos at Sawyer Yards. I spend a lot of time in the studio and I teach art for ARTreach Houston, so please message me first to make sure I'm there when you want to visit!
There's always something to see and do at Sawyer Yards, which is one of the largest creative communities in the States. In the heart of Houston’s historic First Ward, surrounded by active rail yards, former warehouses have been transformed into hundreds of creative studios. As well as art, come for the public galleries, great restaurants, bars and breweries.
A little bit more about me
I've worked as a hospital porter, a tree planter, a gravedigger, an archaeological technician and charity CEO. I spent many years living in the Shetland Islands in Scotland. I learned how to create traditional Shetland knitting and worked for several years designing and producing knitwear.
I am very fortunate to have travelled widely. I have lived in England, Singapore, Iran, Spain, and on Valentine's Day 2014, I moved to Texas, USA. I moved back to London but now I'm in Texas again (yippee!). I have studied art at The Prince's Drawing School and Morley College in London, the Norfolk Painting School, and at the Glassell School of Art and the Art League of Houston in Texas.
