Artist statement

My main area of Art Practice is Painting and Mixed Media work. When creating my artworks, I like to experiment with contrasting materials and media to find a combination that suits each project. Through my art I like to delve into the history of a location, to research and visit that area and then apply the new knowledge to my artworks almost like a documentary. When I create my work, I like to keep all of the shades quite dark and subdued. I will often also add a little bit of colour against the darker shades to make parts of my artwork stand out.
