I’m a visual artist working predominately with the medium of paint. My work fits into two unrelated categories, realism and abstract. Abstract allows me to explore my interest in the materiality of mediums, colour, form and depth. The journey of painting makes me complete knowing that this is what I want to do most in life. I love the process of painting not knowing what the outcome will be, allowing the medium to bring forth the idea and mood of which I want to portray . Mostly the work derives from my subconscious and personal memory of the environment, atmosphere and place. I work with cold wax and oil paint using many tools to apply the paint such as squeegees, brushes, household utensils and my own personal favourite using my hands to apply the paint which gives a looser, fluid and immediate application to the surface.
I’m presently making paintings and prints that hold a tension between very flux organic marks to contrast with linear and controlled lines which creates a tension and unease between these mark makings.
I use my craft to create art designed to lure the viewer in and challenge them to analyse in order to add their own narrative and emotion to it.
