Busy Bee!

Wow I have been so busy recently with all the uni goings on I haven't had a chance to put any new work on here for so long. Check this link out for a little bit about where I was selling some of my canvas bags last weekend. Here's a pic of the ones I've got left...

There are also talks of me selling them at Dragonfly Festival in Sweden in August so thats exciting!
And here is a sneaky preview of some of the things I'll be putting in my show (probably).

Artist Statement

Nature is not only all that is visible to the eye it also includes the inner pictures of the soul."
- Edvard Munch

My current practice explores the relationships between humans, objects and the natural environment. By combining elements of nature with the human form I intend to translate to paper the way in which I see the world and the processes of my subconscious. I often draw from objects I find on walks through the park, collecting and selecting areas of interest and enlarging them to show the detail that would generally go unnoticed to the human eye. I then merge them with unidentified figures, dismissing elements of familiarity and replacing them with unfamiliar details from nature. I use an extremely fine technical pen to create precision and intricacy. Of late, my work has been heavily influenced by Surrealism, collaging elements of various images to create a fantasy world where humans and natural organisms are seen as one entity.
