Emotive AF

'I create emotive impasto oil paintings, combining figurative and abstract elements

with hints to the past. They are often ambiguous, as textures conceal features and

take precedence over the external appearance.

Fascinated by the possibilities of oil paint and texture, I meticulously construct a

painting using multiple layers of oil before masking, erasing, and blurring features

through bold impasto marks, scratching, and peeling. Traces of its history are

exposed – an apparition or fading memory of what’s beneath.

It was encouraging to win an award at The National Open Art Competition shortly

after graduating from Art School.

The endless possibilities of paint and the unknown potential of what can be created is what makes me happy.'

missionary parents"
