Artist Bio: There is not a time I can remember when I didn’t sketch. I was happy to do this throughout my childhood, which thankfully was encouraged by my parents. This continued when I began my degree; when interviewed at Edinburgh College of Art a great emphasis was placed on drawing by my tutor, which made me feel sure I wanted to study there.
I enjoyed at that time sketching people, but also landscapes, this was developed even further on my MA, when I based my work on Graham Greene’s “Brighton Rock” giving me a chance to document all my surroundings.
When I began exhibiting, my paintings were Brighton influenced, generally being seascapes, but at the same time I was interested in colour and composition. As time went on my subject matter became more varied and my focus less about the subject matter and more about atmospheres and feelings.
I love to paint butterflies and flowers as there is something very satisfying about capturing ephemeral things. My aims are to produce pieces that evoke positive themes, whether it is a simple landscape that reminds the viewer of a place close to their heart or a bright canvas to escape grey days.
My chosen medium is acrylic, as I find it is best suited to my way of working, which is to paint layers and layers of colour. I blend different colours into the background of my paintings to evoke sections of light. I feel this creates a glow in the painting, and makes the work more interesting. When I have painted the basics on canvas, I detail using oil Pastel. I love this way of working for many reasons; separating shapes and colours reminds me of my screen painting days at college and also gives me a chance to draw delicate lines, which I feel lends sensitivity to the painting.
