WORK

My paintings are an exploration into my own raw emotions serving to document my personal observations of life and humanity (good or bad). My visceral response to these observations create a solid bond between myself and the work I present as records of memories and experiences. This is achieved by using acrylic and oil paint, oil pastels, graphite and other mixed mediums ensuring a combination of realism and painterly flourish. Tools such as palette knives and sandpaper are also used to add, extract and move paint around the canvas. At times kitchen utensils, nuts, bolts, bubble wrap and anything else that creates an unusual mark have been used.
