About my artwork
My work is intuitive. I start simply with a line or a shape and let my imagination take its course. I like my work to have texture. I use underlying pieces, broken disks, empty cigarette boxes or any other manner of bric-a-brac to give me a base to envision a piece. This gives me the drive and feel for my work and my imagination comes to the fore, seeing shapes and patterns. I use many layers in my work, painting over certain parts and then sanding others, not only does it add interesting textures but also enlightening depths and glimpses of vague shapes and shades beneath the overlaying mixes of colour. It also gives a sense of personality and you can see things in them which maybe others can’t. I use many styles to achieve what I want whether that be sprayed, scratched, spattered or dripped. it’s a vision of coalescence and build-up, almost an aerial view of a landscape, and when all the layers and textures come together and I achieve that depth I desire in my art.
Artists I like
Schiele, Pollock, Karen Jacobs, Dave Mckean
Music, Art and filmaking
Centre of the artworld:
nowhere and everywhere
