About the artist

Emerging Multi Media Artist

“Art is a step in the known toward the unknown”.

– Kahlil Gibran

As a multi-media artist my work embraces both complexity and simplicity. My approach encompasses a divergent mix of styles and methods, embracing a broad aesthetic that includes; still life, portraiture, drawing, abstract and botanical artworks.

I use a variety of traditional and non-traditional materials, including acrylic paint, oil and chalk pastels, ink, charcoal and fabric.

I aim to capture the ‘mood’ of each artwork, using an earthy colour palette, creating textures and layers through mark making by fusing mediums. I am captivated by the works of Egon Schiele, Toulouse Lautrec and Ben Quilty, a further reflection of my diverse spectrum of styles. A love of blind contour drawing and the essence of Schiele’s mottled skin textures and the juxtaposition of Lautrec’s graphic art posters and Quilty’s brave brush strokes has inspired me to further my development creating texture and the consideration of applying colours intentionally.

INFLUENCES:

Through my natural inclination towards creativity I have always been drawn to the arts and design. My immersion in the arts began as a young child, with a rich multicultural heritage and extraordinarily diverse artistic family, spread over several continents are engaged in the arts from; printmaking, painting, ceramics, sculpture and architecture to fashion design, over many generations, dating back to the home of the impressionists’ in Le Havre, France.

I aim to capture the mood and feeling of each piece, using texture and an earthy colour palette, creating layers by fusing mixed-media and digital technology as a meeting point of overlapping systems intertwining methodologies. My style is diverse, however, as an emerging artist refinement will occur naturally over time.

Given that my background comprises and embraces the interconnection between art, design,
spirituality and healing, it has been a natural evolution for me to fuse each space. This allows me to follow the inherent ebb and flow of intuition and creativity of each new venture and collaboration with like-minded fellow creatives and inspiring mentors who share my desire to affect positive change.

As a citizen of the world, I am inspired by the innate kindness within us all; the peace keepers, truth seekers, altruistic entrepreneurs, philanthropists, artists and visionaries who create enriching experiences that contribute toward a flourishing and sustainable future.
