My paintings are abstract, with a strong architectural influence. Taking inspiration from abandoned building or the natural world, I create a visual story using a multilayer technique. My formal training has given me a keen understanding of colours, contrasts and design, and I use this knowledge as a
starting point, manipulating pigments and using a layering technique to convey my point of view.
My creative process is multi-layered-I begin by capturing the visual in a photograph, then I draw, sketch and paint. Within this process I uncover deeper meanings and hidden narratives within the subject, using experimental colours, shapes and forms to describe the abstraction.
I am interested in exploring the concept of memory, as it relates to a particular place or object.
As an artist, observation & interaction with place is a vital component to my painting and sculptures.
My work attempts to cross over and connect my architectural imagery the ageing of memory, a movement and link between time and space.
Emotions are enlightened. A memory of been present.
