2. Explain your style of art
I like to call my style of art 'Escapism'! I paint scenes that are tranquil and relaxing and allow the viewer to escape from their daily lives. I believe strongly in imagery, which is a technique used in stress management to recreate an enjoyable or relaxing scene. I like to think my paintings have a resonance with this idea of imagery and that perhaps a stressful situation could be helped by gazing into a relaxing scene!
3. Who are your influences?
I studied Georgia O'Keefe and am a big fan of her work. I love the way she simplified nature with her paintings and really brought the detail of her flowers to life. I am also a fan of Jack Vettriano's work. I really admire the way they have both managed to inject light and dark into their paintings, albeit with very different subjects...
