I love the textures you find in them and in my work recreates them using oils and mixed media. I am very process led and I love seeking and exploring the textures in the paint, how I can alter it and mix it with different mediums to create new and unpredictable effects. Building up layers, rubbing, staining, scratching into, printing onto and then stripping it back to find the hidden texture within. To this I may also add college or stencils to create a finished piece.
I studied Textiles Design at Falmouth University and am currently undertaking the Porthmeor Programme at St Ives School of Painting.
