A summary of the artist’s artistic philosophy:
I mostly produce larger works, I find when art is made larger it becomes more consuming and unavoidable.
My works can be quite intense, I mostly like to work from anything from 100cmx100cm upwards.
Whether you like them or dislike them, because of their size, they are present and it makes the viewer present also.
Artistic insights or techniques employed by the artist:
I generally use acrylics with matt medium fluid and oil pastels. I’m an impatient painter so paints gets mixed with other paints. I choose floral imagery to explore brighter colours. I’m not concerned on exactly how a flower might look, I’m more interested in the abstraction, colours and their ever changing lines and shapes.
