Painter & Ceramic Artist

Philosophy

My work is a texture. I consistently focus on texture within my practice; both painting and ceramics. I gather the materials I wish to use and start to create, embracing this idea of ‘non-control’. It is this process lead approach that drives the outcome. By doing so, I have been able to focus solely on the materiality of my work, that texture is the key element within my practice. Ceramics and painting might come across as two contrasting crafts, however that is not how I interpret them within my practice. Clay is a natural earth-derived material, much of which my paintings consist of, in the form of soil which I dig from my garden to be mixed with my oils and acrylics. I aspire to break the boundaries between these art forms and enable them to work coherently with one another and to be displayed as one.

I am currently a final year student studying Ceramic Design at Central Saint Martins, specialising primarily in ceramics yet with a keen interest and background in painting. With a constant enthusiasm for acquiring knowledge and experience, as well as having an eye for visual aesthetics, I am determined to pursue my ambition in the design world by seeking opportunities in new and diverse environments. At the age of 21 I very much look forward to exploring these art mediums to my fullest potential.

A few of my recent works

I am constantly exploring and focusing on materiality when I make. Through my artistic lens, materiality and manipulation lie on a similar frequency. What sort of surfaces can I manipulate with clay, that differs from that of paint? Can I experiment with paint and clay so vigorously that they now have a new and improved definition? What creative language have I discovered by pushing the boundaries of these materials? These are questions that I constantly find floating around in my head when I am creating.

Numeroventi Artist Residency & Exhibition

A Florentine artistic sanctuary, creating in the impressionable Palazzo Galli Tassi was an experience that I will carry with me for years to come. In the summer of July 2020 I was offered to take participate in an artist residency at Numeroventi. This experience has introduced me to so many special people. Thank you Martino, Daniel, Cisco and Elisa, you are all wonderful.
