I enjoy mixing influences such as Neo Classical and Renaissance composition with musical references such as ton and texture in my paintings. Sometimes bringing a dreamlike, futuristic quality, I incorporate colourful backdrops and mystical settings. I’ve been trying to push the theme of the ‘metaphysical’ or ‘otherworldly’ into my work in order to demonstrate a higher state of mind or enlightenment, which a lot of people experiment with as a form of escaping the mundane. I use my own experiences a source for the positioning of my characters and represent memories and conversations I have had- some difficult and painful to draw from.
