Artist Statement

Contemporary Abstract Artist

‘My artwork connects to a shared idea of the unrestricted self that still finds joy in a fleeting glimpse of light and shade. This takes form in its abstract nature, I try not to invoke emotions with representational imagery from my surrounding, but rather lead the viewer into their own.

Through expressive bold brush marks, charcoal and the use of palette knives to build texture, I create a tactile surface which forms an awkward balance between the concealed and the exposed.’
