My work is inspired by architecture and the deconstruction of the traditional ‘landscape’. I am inspired by traditional and contemporary practices, exploring a balance between restraint and freedom as well as the figurative and the abstract. I explore the visual qualities
of abstraction through controlled gestural work, using a variety
of mediums such as watercolours, oils and markers. Gestural, seemingly loose, marks in each painting and drawing have been put there in a considered manner. My art practice is directly inspired by my work with graphic design, with the focus on minimalism, subtlety and control crossing between both practices.
