As an Artist I seek to create an emotional response that captures the viewer’s attention and transports them into the painting. My work is representational and therefore the choice of subject is always a key consideration.
I paint with bright, bold colours that are applied in “bricks” – each brick integrates with other bricks to form an overall seamless recognizable image. It’s a technique I describe as “brickilism”.
In many of my works I include a sub-image – a shadow that is subtle and yet relevant to the overall work. Shadows enhance the story of the main image, creating a sub-plot which may not be discovered by the viewer until they’ve become absorbed in the main story.
As an artist, I strive to ensure the viewer becomes as engaged with the work as I was during the creative process.
