ARTISTIC STATEMENT

I have a wide and varied knowledge of fine art practice and how challenging it can be. As a fine art painter my work is expressionistic in nature and the root of my inspiration lies in observation and emotional source, working from an experience, feeling or emotion. My main strategy is to communicate these emotions through a repeated working of surface and the manipulation and experimentation of materials. My paintings are subtly representational but contain areas less easy to read, hoping the viewer will be absorbed in them, studying every area of the canvas. My aim is to hope the viewer will want to come back for another look. Working as an individual means being organised and using forward thinking. I have gained experience in a wide range of skills which include painting, photography and sculpture. I have also been involved in the organising and hanging of exhibitions including marketing and publicity over the last few years. I regularly visit local galleries and make frequent visits to exhibitions in London and abroad, referencing historical and contemporary artists.
