Get to Know
I am a freelance graphic designer and a digital mixed media visual artist. I create my art using a fusion of traditional watercolour/acrylic and digital painting with silhouette illustrations. There is a dynamic contrast between the flatness of my silhouette illustrations and the energy portrayed in their gestures. The colourful impressionistic or semi abstract backgrounds on my paintings add depth and mood to my subjects. I am inspired by my daughter, my desire to create and share my thoughts, and also by my photography subjects. I started creating my original wearable art by chance using leftover acrylic paint onto pieces of art paper. Each stroke of paint is an expression of my inner thoughts with conscious consideration for harmonious colour combinations. My tool of choice is a palette knife, employing styles from abstract to impressionistic.
