Why did you pick this picture?
I chose this picture because it was one of my first pieces that I was really pleased with and I love the contrast between the elegance and ‘perfection’ of the model with the chaos which is introduced by the use of the colour and dragged paint.
Where did the idea come from?
This idea for this piece came from my interest in Psychology and the ways in which people can be depicted in a variety of different ways and that they can present themselves in whichever way they chose, however what they choose to show may not be the whole truth.
What does this art mean to you?
This piece is meaningful to me as art allowed me to find myself and in order to do that I couldn’t be afraid of other people’s opinions and this is something that I think is important for everyone to do in every aspect of their lives.
What can you tell us about yourself?
My favourite colour is black, my favourite flowers are roses and I love people watching haha
What more can you tell us about your art?
My art varies a lot from tattoo designs to chaotic impasto pieces and then classic realistic portraits. I love looking for new ways to depict quite cliche themes and subject matter and I love creating diverse responses and interpretations.
