This selection is made up of a few collections. The first are paintings based in is East End of London including some of Brick Lane in the rain. Another group of work is from a series I did called ‘Cool Britannia’. These are a series of paintings done based on members only clubs in town including the shockingly cool Momo and Atlantic bars.
A series of work inspired by life in Cambridge, times to make you smile. With this series, called 'Queuing, ice-cream and snogs’ I want to creating work that reflects the tiny joys of daily life. I'm trying to tell stories of moments that inspire me. This series was supported by an award for Developing Creative Practice from the Arts Council of England.
