Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
I am a Welsh professional practician of Art. Originally born in England my family moved to Wales when I was three years old. I studied an Honours Degree in Fine Art at the University of Wales Institute, Cardiff where I achieved a 2:2.
I am experienced with Drawing, Painting, Sculpture, Casting, Paper Craft, Lace Craft, Weave Craft, Engraving, and I am currently on an Advance Photoshop course.
The subject matters I am fascinated with are; Texture, Colour and Form. The artist which represents my interests the most is Vincent Van Gogh in his later and more colourful period of his painting life.
I also like monster concepts in media. As a result I enjoy playing Pokemon and Monster Hunter and watching films with monsters.
At this moment I am using birds as a vessel for my artwork. I think the reason why I like them is the texture of the feathers, the sharp pointedness of the beak, the torpedo-like shape of their bodies and the intrigue of knowing that they are descendants of biped Dinosaurs. I find it thrilling to look at a bird and recognise dinosaur-like features.
Ironically the animals I like the most are cats, red pandas and the weasel family.
