My subject matter is primarily nature with a scattering of portraiture. There is a clear distinction between subject matter, technique, and colour in this body of work.
Part of my practice is to look past the obvious, closely observe and commit to the subject. However, I am guilty of being easily distracted. This may be slightly evident, but all part of being a practicing artist.
I work in oils for its suppleness, lustre, delicacy, and strength of colour. This paint has a readiness to be transformed into either sheer luminous glazes or thick texture like butter.
I paint additionally in acrylics with perspex as my support. I work in acrylics for its rapid drying qualities, vibrancy of colour and its sheer versatility.
