About The Art
Oil, Acrylic, Pastel
I think my background in filmmaking naturally draws me to concepts of movement. For my end of year exhibition at Espacio Gallery,2017, I created an animation based on classical Indian dance using projected stop motion images and drawings : At Slade's summer school last year, I moved this on to a large scale oil painting of walkers on a beach, working only with primary colours, and at Heatherley's layering life drawing and painting using acrylics and charcoal.
I have been working as a filmmaker most of my life and recently discovered abilities in fine art which have fuelled a passion in drawing , painting and mixed media. I am pretty much employed full-time and so I take advantage of London's great art courses for concerted binges on projects, learning, inspiration, and for their studio space as working from my tiny dining room is very limited.
