I am a self taught London based artist.
I have created a diverse portfolio through oil painting and digital art and my work splits into several distinct categories.
The abstract landscapes use thick layers of paint to create textures and depth. I am interested in how the medium of oil paint can be used to create effects and suggest forms within the painting itself.
These landscapes generate an otherworldly yet naturalistic image, leaving the subject open to interpretation. The intention is to create paintings using experimental techniques, producing work that is abstracted and expressionistic.
The oil portraits are of friends and family members. I use a different technique and style for the portraits – flat brushes and palette knives, rather than the round brush techniques employed in the abstract landscapes. As well as capturing an aspect of the sitters personality I intend to paint a dynamic picture with vivid brushstrokes and colour.
In 2016 I have created a new portfolio of digital art “Metamorphica”. Drawing inspiration from mythology and symbolism these animal headed hybrids mix fashionable humans with paganistic totemism.
