I am a contemporary artist based in Ashbourne in the Peak District. I paint expressive abstract paintings using acrylic on canvas.
My work is about life as a person living with depression, those around me, and my place in the world. The highs, the lows - love, loss, mood, isolation, place and belonging, since being diagnosed with cyclic depression at the age of 30.
Through my paintings I want to bring a better understanding and acceptance of the issues surrounding depression, and the difficulties for those who love them, based on my own experiences.
At the moment the world feels in turmoil and depression aside, I feel helpless with all the challenges we are facing. I want to explore some of these issues though the visual language I have created through my paintings.
