Mixed Media Painting

Mixed Media Painting


  I work instinctively, using the elements of heightened emotions, spatial awareness and relevance of source. By using a variety of materials I mix traditional and contemporary methods to create mixed media pieces by allowing the chemicals and materials to react and resist with each other. I develop the emerging piece towards what I am seeing, whereby the canvas can evolve into a 3D structured painting.

Through experimenting in this way my work develops through context of source and the textural surface qualities. My aim is to allow the unpredictability of the elements used, to form and shape their own destiny of which I then try to snatch back control. 

  Currently working on an external mural for a local community/residential space in Kirkby with KHT and Kirkby Arts and Crafts.  Expanding on a body of work which was exhibited in the Liverpool Biennial ‘Liquid’
