I am a professional artist living and working in London.  I have been exhibiting my work on a regular basis for some years and have participated in several art fairs and group shows.  My current work explores everyday rhythmic variations in the urban environment and how these can trigger associations that connect with inner psychological states and memories.  My work uses geometry and colour to create a visual dynamic that is non-representational, but more about the perception of space in relation to place. 

I welcome visits to my studio by arrangement.
