I am a full time award winning visual artist working in Oils and Acrylic and Aqua Resin on Canvas. My Recent work deals with lanscape, cityscape and urban settings and situations, I enjoy creating Dramatic imagery using light and shadow in my work, I also incorporate a satirical look at our social world and how we interact with each other. You can find hidden messages and images in my pieces engaging the viewer and challenging the way you view the world. In my work I also love to explore social media issues dealing with real life situations, offering a glimpse into our social structures, interactions, and how modern day technology impacts our lives. Any of my pieces will definitely be a conversation piece in your home or at the office; the more you look the more you will discover.
In my previous pieces I have created a unique art form combining a 3-dimensional image in a 2-dimensional space, which has increasingly been drawing attention in the art community. It is my conviction that without the human aspect art would not exist; consequently, I incorporate the human form into my art to represent the human spirit.
