Design & Mixed Media
On this page there is a selection of ongoing experiments with mixed media art. I believe design is an important facet of my painting practice as it strengthens my use of composition and colour. Working with paper, ink, gouache and watercolours on an intimate scale allows me to heighten drama or humour creating small surreal worlds from found and manipulated images. It is a working methodology that allows me to extend a style of image making opposite to large scale abstract painting. In a way these works act as a counterpoint or balancing agent to my whole art making process.
