About the artist
Lives and works in London, UK. Her work is featured in private and public collections in the USA, UK, Europe (France, Sweden, the Netherlands) and Australia. She is also the editor of the
Tainted Glory art blog.

Artist Statement
My paintings come from a vain attempt to harness chaos and are often the results of 'happy accidents'. I create dark and surreal compositions where I explore and push the potential of paint as a medium. I use the rhythm of marks, the thickness of layers and the fluidity of oil to build images where fragility and strength cohabit side by side within the same space. I give the viewer just enough clues about what is happening on the canvas (or paper) so that the work retains a sense a mystery and is always one step away from collapsing into nothingness.

Education
Fine Art BA, Central St Martins College of Art and Design, London, 2008.
