Mixed Media Painting

Painting for me emulates life; you might not know exactly where it’s heading but building layers and depth helps to build a rich foundation.

Colour, texture and mark making is a constant theme in my work. As an intuitive painter I let the painting direct me as opposed to forcing preconceived notions of what it should be. It’s about the process and the art is a dialogue between myself and the work. The layers are created to reflect current moments in time; emotions, thoughts and ideas.

Above all, with whatever I create, I seek to impart a sense of vitality and joy, a celebration of colour and quirks.
