I have been a prolific creator all my life, I am passionate about communicating visually and have studied Art to postgraduate level in the UK. I am particularly interested in expressing the unseen. I am continually inspired by people and outdoor spaces and it is this inspiration I aim to capture in my work. I focus largely on the human form and explore a range of emotional / social factors through symbolism, composition and colour. I work with a range of media, especially paint and I often create mixed media pieces on paper and canvas. My work contains elements of realism and expressionism, tone is fragmented, compositions are dynamic and colours are bold. Identity is a strong reoccurring theme in my work, especially in relation to gender, heritage and spirituality.
