I am a Welsh painter currently based in Bristol, UK. Within my practice I use a variety of mediums including printmaking, photography, zine making and drawing, which interact with each other and further inform my paintings, which I am always drawn back to. Through delving into personal experiences and family histories, I hope to discover the treasures and secrets of the places that we inhabit, and the memories that inhabit us. Magic, playfulness and colour are at the core of what I make, tangled up in- and sometimes in contrast with- the darkness and sadness of human experience. These contrasts of dark and light, real and false, heavy and joyful which we encounter every day on our journeys to belong and connect are the essence of what my work means to me and through the tactile and multifaceted nature of paint and mark making I am able to engage fully with these thoughts and feelings.
