Visual Art: Painter
My style is called Split Realism and combines elements such as realistic faces, landscapes, found objects or graphic elements. I contrast these with each other, developing a different context to the work. My images tell stories with their layers of elements, creating its very own narrative. The hundreds of objects in my studio capture the “voice” of the work. Drawn in by the depth and richness, the compositions are woven together producing art that is tapestry-like in its richness. With an extensive background in both graphic and fine art, and degrees in art history and art education, I possess a wide perspective from which to draw. I tend to pull inspiration from each, so that my work has references to various art styles and techniques that blend into one image.
