Having suffered a traumatic event in my life and having to deal with the ensuing depression and anxieties that came as a result, I turned to my lifelong passion of art to help me through the difficult times. I also decided to get involved with voluntary work as an environmental and conservation worker within Epping Forest and over time, my passion for art and nature combined, which has resulted in me producing my 'Trees of Life' gallery series.
Although I thoroughly enjoyed using traditional mediums such as watercolours and acrylics to paint traditional real life scenes, I felt something was missing. I felt as if I needed to pursue a different type of art by using different mediums and so I began to experiment.
In finding my passion, I knew I wanted to create more contemporary pieces of art; truly original pieces that would bring a sense of beauty and intrigue to any wall space and whilst going through this time of experimentation and discovery, I came across the medium of resin. Having worked with glass previously, I found resin gave me a fluidity and flexibility that was missing with glass that I needed in order to achieve the desired look. Reflective and tactile 3D pieces that had previously inspired me and so I set about creating a style that not only satisfied me as an artist, but would hopefully satisfy others in such a way that they would invest in unique and original art pieces to make their wall spaces beautiful.
I discovered that my satisfaction was not just about producing real life art scenes, but getting involved in the creativity of producing art pieces that invoke emotions, interest and intrigue. Taking inspiration from nature, indulging in what I love and hopefully portraying that passion to others.
'KNOWING THAT NO ONE ELSE IN THE WORLD HAS THAT PIECE OF ART IS A WONDERFUL FEELING THAT YOU CAN ENJOY FOREVER AND OTHERS CAN ENVY'
