Degree: BA Fine Art Painting
University: Wimbledon College of Art
My current artwork continues to be influenced by Neo-Expressionism and I am profoundly influenced by Gerhard Richter.
I used photography as a means of gathering information, I am open to all subject areas and scenery. I use the image as the basis from which I develop the ideas for the composition. I seek to imbue the artwork with emotions,energy and sensitivity; I use brushstrokes and colour to create these emotions in my work.
Through my brushstrokes and use of colour, I seek to explore the neo-expressionist and abstract art forms..... My work explores and highlights the beauty of nature. I also seek to explore the human psyche and the wide range of emotions: sadness, happiness, pain, suffering. My intention is to tap into the viewer's subconscious mind and connect with their emotions. It may be that an image triggers a memory and time to reflect; or possibly look back on a memory that was not long forgotten.
