Artist

I am an audio-visual artist with a background in music, acoustics, product design, and sound engineering. I work across a range of media and technologies including painting, installation, sound and video. 

 

My paintings often evoke acoustic memories within atmospheric architectural spaces. I like to paint interior spaces, thresholds, and viewpoints which invoke a sense of spaciousness and inner peace, as well as abstracts and expressive landscapes.

 

Commission ideas are welcome. These paintings usually refer to photographs of a chosen space or viewpoint within atmospheric and architectural spaces.

 

I work from memory, photographs, and my imagination, applying various textures, layers and technical qualities to the painted surface to evoke a sense of dimension, acoustic, and properties of light. The paintings are often framed from a filmic viewpoint, incorporating reflective surfaces and counterintuitive perspectives. They sit between realism and impressionism and often include characteristic elements from my own background, as well as occasional playful abstraction.

 

I completed an MA in Contemporary Fine Art at the University of Cumbria’s Institute of the Arts in 2017. I also have a PGCE in Post-Compulsory Education (2007); a Diploma in Acoustics and Noise Control (1994); and a BSc Hons in Engineering Product Design (1989). From 2017-2022 I was based at Mutual, an artist-run studio co-operative in Edinburgh, and in 2022 moved to set up my own studio in Glasgow. My mother is the celebrated British ceramic artist Elizabeth Fritsch CBE and I look after her archive and online interests.
