I am very excited to be showing my work at the Trestle Theatre in St Albans for Open Studios 2022
No 44 of the art trail.
I am an intuitive multimedia contemporary artist. Working in acrylics and oils. My work is built up layer upon layer of paint and mark making with different tools and other mediums to create unique art. Ideas form within my mind as I paint and memories and feelings often emerge. My current work is focused more on figures and figurative art, although creatures often show up in my work where you least expect them.
I am fascinated by the power of colour and how it affects our feelings and emotions. My trade colour is turquoise and you will always find this beautiful colour in my paintings. It reminds me of the stunning turquoise sea and how good it makes you feel.
I have two different styles, one is a graffitti street art style, which is completely intuitive and change constantly. Normally painted on large canvases using acrylics, spray paints, inks and other mediums too. My other style is more focused on the human form and painted in oils, they often have a ethereal feel to them and are painted on wood.
