Exploring the South: Mediterranean Landscapes

I come from a family of artists but on the whole, am a self-taught painter. I work mainly in oil and my subject matter focuses on the rich and varied landscapes that characterise the Mediterranean. I’m originally from Kent but I’ve been a regular volunteer at Lauderdale House for many years so it’s an ideal venue to stage my first solo show in London. The paintings on display show the evolution of my style over several years of work, with different influences inspiring my work in different ways.

I have always been inspired by landscapes and landscape artists such as Monet, Van Gogh and Wayne Thiebaud and my earlier works reflect this love of bold colour and composition. In 2016 I spent 4 months studying in Rome as part of my art history masters and discovered a new inspiration in the landscapes of medieval and renaissance paintings. These works often emphasised light, space and a modest natural beauty. My more recent works reflect this sentiment in my depictions of Southern France and Italy, where I have travelled to for many years and have drawn much creative inspiration from.

I’ve been painting with oils since the age of ten and sold my first piece in an exhibition at the same age. In 2007 I was accepted into the East Kent Art Society as its youngest ever member at the age of 14, followed by acceptance into the Canterbury Society of Art. Since then I have exhibited regularly in exhibitions in my home county of Kent. In 2011 I joined forces with my grandmother and father, who are also both artists and we staged our first joint exhibition in the Fish Slab Gallery in Whitstable. In 2014 I held an exhibition of my work in Norwich whilst studying my undergraduate degree at The University of East Anglia.
