‘My practice centres on creating abstracted architectural spaces through the reinterpretation of buildings. My paintings isolate and glorify the make-up of shapes that surround us, praising aspects of commonly used space that may be passed by.

I am drawn to the everchanging appearance of a cityscape; adjacent contrasting architectural styles, austere facades, and looming glass towers. The paintings are interpretations of sites I have a connection to; meeting points, landmarks that mark the start of an onward journey, buildings that inform me I’m nearly home. The titles of the work form a narrative for the sites in focus.

Capturing architecture in the evening light, I aim to catch a fragment of the inherently familiar as a means to highlight the simple beauty of a routine. Thin washes are gradually built up to create depth and colours are enriched and exaggerated to further disguise each original identity; mimicking the inevitable changes that occur, much like the process of creating an actual building.’
