I have always been fascinated by insects and since I started painting them I have learned a lot. Over 75% of living creatures are insects and they are absolutely vital to the eco-system of our planet.
I have painted huge black beetles from Indonesia, cicadas from Thailand and vivid blue weevils from the Congo.
But I also love painting the less exotic, insects found on windowsills or in dusty corners of our homes: fierce yellow and black masked wasps or tragic furry bumble bees.
Even ordinary house flies caught in sunlight have wonderful complicated shadows which reflect how I feel about all insects. They may be small and we may dislike them coming into our houses, but their loss will cast a very long shadow indeed over our future.
Perhaps my paintings will persuade people to look again at the creatures who share our lives. And maybe think twice before swatting them!

My paintings are a response to the urban environment and are concerned with imagining possible narratives, histories and alternative realities. I am interested in how the painted image relates to ideas of identity and in manifesting states of flux. My work is engaged with painting's past at the same time as imagining a way forward for painting amongst the fast paced image saturated contemporary world. I am currently studying for an MA at Chelsea College of Art and Design.
