Enthused by my portfolio I am inspired by the free flowing energy my drawings contain. Experimenting with mono-printing, collaging and spray painting has allowed me to capture their qualities and translate their lines into my own work.
In my practical work I am inspired by the urban environment. I am particularly interested in texture, colour, scale, mood and perspective. Growing up in Edinburgh and having widened my travels to northern Europe, I have been inspired by many interesting buildings. Ornate windows; doors and brickwork have become a characteristic focus and starting point for my work.
My work is primarily made using oxidised and unoxidised wire and coloured acrylics. I use wire to create linear structures in order to replicate the same quality as my drawn lines. To add contrast to these structures I use coloured non precious materials similar to everyday objects found within the urban environment.
