About me
Hello! Here's some bumpf about me... I spent more than twenty years in the creative industries working on entertainment programmes, talk shows, documentaries, animations and a children’s novel. But creating original and innovative art is my true passion. My latest work celebrates the beauty of the city through the shapes, outlines and colours that define its character. London, New York, Hong Kong, Singapore, Miami, Paris and Dubai all feature in my portfolio. The art is created by digitally manipulating and colouring my own photographs to produce unusual prints on aluminium, reclaimed wood, brass, even 1930’s copper-lite windows. I also create neon, magnetic, and L.E.D installations. The metal pieces are printed on very thin sheets of brushed aluminium, giving the work an etched appearance.   l work out of my studio at Wimbledon Art Studios in South London. I am represented by Degree Art.   Recent exhibitions include The Affordable Art Fair (Battersea, Hampstead, Singapore, New York, Milan), The Other Art Fair (New York, LA, London), and The Open Studios Show at Wimbledon Art Studios. Having had 8 exhibitions cancelled due to the pandemic I'm delighted to announce my next exhibtion. A River Runs Through It is back. And this time it's virtual. Join us for our fifth London-inspired art show, online from September 2-6th. The five artists will be unveiling their new London-art collections in a virtual version of London's Oxo Gallery, alongside a programme of talks, interviews and a chance to win some great London prizes, raising money for the inspirational London's Air Ambulance.

  • A River Runs Through It, gallery@oxo, Sept 6-10This September, five of London’s most dynamic artists are taking over gallery@oxo, situated in the heart of the South Bank. Urban Soup presents A River Runs Through It, an art exhibition exploring London’s vibrant personality and ever-changing landscape through its colours, shapes and unique perspectives. F i v e A r t i s t s O n e A m a z i n g C i t y This exhibition will showcase the breathtaking artworks of Urban Soup, a group of artists living in our city, bound by their love of the metropolis. Each artist offers their own distinctive interpretation of the city’s evolving environment using a variety of unusual mediums and materials in their work including: Dazzling light installations; delicate paper sculptures; intricate cityscapes drawn with a biro; wafer-thin aluminium prints; reclaimed 1930’s windows, ultra-vivid HDR photographs; stunningly colourful acrylic cityscapes, the finest impressionist oil paintings, and interactive art. Plus a fantastic selection of affordable prints to collect. This year’s artists include LoveJordan, the much sought-after duo who caused quite a stir with their recent sell-out show at the prestigious Woolff Gallery in Fitzrovia; Sarah Fosse whose art has appeared in The Wall Street Journal, Vogue, and on the BBC; Michael Wallner, a former television producer who has exhibited world-wide including New York, Singapore, and Milan; Tom Cox, an exciting young artist tipped as ‘one to watch’ by the Evening Standard; and Munleen Sibia, a former county tennis player whose work has been featured in Vogue’s ‘World of Interiors’ and by Time Out. The Urban Soup artists live within 10 miles of each other, yet they see their surroundings in very different ways. We look forward to showing you how at gallery@oxo this September.
