My wide range of skills and interest in texture has led me to explore and use materials in my paintings to create the depth and effects I want to portray.
My mixed media artworks combine traditional media like oil, watercolour and acrylic paints with materials such as metal leaf, pigments and plaster (gypsum and lime).
I enjoy studying nature and animals. I use a range of drawing and painting techniques including ink, pencil and watercolour. I use these as a foundation for my mixed media work, as it helps me to focus on how to create the texture and express the subject close up.
