"My painting practice and current Doctoral Research is based on memories of places I have lived or longingly imagined, with a focus on the landscape and heritage of coastal communities of East Cleveland. This examines the extent artists can meaningfully inform an understanding of a place, with a focus on Solastalgia - the homesickness we feel while still at home. It’s the pain and longing we feel as we realize the world immediately around us is changing, with our love for that world serving as a catalyst for action on its behalf.

My paintings convey an idea and essence of a place and the melancholy of longing and wanting to belong. An unfashionable romanticism grounded in the act of painting."
