I am an artist and designer working in mixed media.
My artistic background lies in printed textiles and graphic design so I am a relative newcomer to painting. I work with a mix of wet and dry media, sometimes all on the same piece. More recently I have started to work digitally, often working on an existing painting which has been scanned.
I love experimenting so what can start as a simple idea can evolve into a painting of overlaid textures and patterns, often informing the viewer of another possible narrative.
Like many people, this year has been one of mixed fortune for me. With so many shows and pop-ups being cancelled my momentum has slowed and my work output diminished considerably. On the other hand, this enforced downtime has allowed for an retrospective regard of my work – an opportunity to re-visit past ideas and themes with a changed eye and from a new perspective.
I look forward to a time when I can once again work alongside other artists, not just for the camaraderie but for the bubbling of ideas that occurs when creatives come together!
