I am painter, printmaker and ceramicist who responds to perfume in two and three dimensions. Based on synaesthesia, where one sense activates other senses, I am currently collaborating with the perfume house Parterre, to explore artistically the colours, shapes, smells and textures of their four signature perfumes. This work is being prepared for an exhibition at Parterre’s home, Keyneston Mill, in Dorset in June 2022.
This work also forms part of an MA in Ceramics at UCA in Farnham, due for completion in September this year, 2021.
While I hope my work will provide an engaging and immersive experience for any audience, I am particularly interested in how my work could enhance the art experience for the visually impaired. With this in mind, I also have an exhibition scheduled for Moorfields Eye Hospital in London in 2022.
I have been exhibiting my paintings and prints widely across the UK and France with work in collections across the UK and Australasia.
Ceramics is a new venture for me and I hope that this new work, complemented by paintings, will add a valuable dimension to the art experience as we have been so deprived of the haptic and olfactory senses of late.
Let me know what you think! I’d love to hear from you.
