I am an Abstract artist pushing the boundaries between two and three dimensional art. I love creating detail orientated work as I believe theres a beauty in finding the balance between simplicity and complexity.
I use my work to satisfy my need to exercise control. In my work I explore repetition through working with set parameters, i.e. grids, folds, specific colour palettes, lines, shapes and forms. I initially started working in this way as I found it useful to alleviate stress, anxiety, and migraines. I am interested in how my work can represent a sense of the disorientation brought on by emotional and physical stresses, visually.
The inspiration for my work is my own mind and how I strive to control and calm my thoughts and actions. My art practice gives me the opportunity to convert and utilise the stress and anxiety into something creative, complex, and beautiful.
My art practice falls into the categories of Abstract Art, Op Art and Process Art. Stress and anxiety can be the result of many things good and bad. In my current project I am demonstrating the disorientating effect during migraines, emotional overload and stressful situations. My art practice gives me the opportunity to utilise the stress and anxiety into something creative, complex and beautiful. The inspiration for my work is my own mind and how I strive to control and calm my thoughts and actions. A lot of work goes into every detail which makes the final outcome so striking.
