Welcome to 'Art and Patterns' my Creative Hub.
I Create colourful contemporary Mixed-media collages on canvas.
Abstraction is my natural art style.
I am inspired by colours, textures and surfaces in natural and man-made environments, I also have a keen interest in Interiors, Materials, Design and Architecture. I really wanted to complete a Fine Art degree back in the day, but could not find a part time course that would allow me to juggle family life and studying. The best option available for me at the time was a Surface Design and Printed Textile degree course that allowed me the flexibility I needed. I gained useful artistic and textile skills on this course.
My love and appreciation of art and surfaces, lead me to complete a Surface Design and Printed Textiles degree. I used a combination of Hand and Digital techniques - such as drawing, painting, hand-screen printing and digital printing - to create motifs, surface patterns and repeat patterns for all types of interior and fashion products.
I am also intrigued by the processes involved in creating Abstract Art and have combined techniques and processes by using paper and acrylic paint mediums to create unique Abstract Artworks that are vibrant, colourful and textured. I enjoy creating abstract work with the emphasis on colour and shapes hence my current art theme is Colour and Movement or ....
Colour, textures and the human condition inform the work I create.
