Many of my paintings are made with acrylic paint, either on canvas, paper or on cradled birch board. To add texture and detail I use oil and chalk pastel, pencils, charcoal, and any manner of mark making implement; twigs, feathers and fingers included. Collage often plays a part in the early layers of a painting. Recently I have been experimenting with oil paint and cold wax medium, which allows me to explore the colour, texture and layering opportunities that I love. I’m also spending more time revisiting photography, and playing with new ways to incorporate the digital medium into my analogue art practice.
