About "Images of Africa"
The rythmn and silent drum of Africa is what inspired this painting. A synergy with warriors, rhythmn, energy.
I have a style unto my own and cannot really be catogorised as an abstract or fine artist as many times I will incorporate both into my paintings. I have an intense fascination with colour, form and texture and try to capture this in whatever medium the moment moves me to use.I enjoy producing tactile works with the use of various materials such as hand made paper,beads, and metals with enamel, acrylic or oils, thus engaging the viewer not just with sight but also with touch.My works seem to have an energy of movement which is created with smooth satiny surfaces or raw texture, all of which is meant to force the viewer to look beyond surface appeal. I try to create works that allows the viewer to see new forms and colours everytime they look at the painting. My works can sometines lean toward the "Industrial", but this is balanced with the use of feminine colours.I also do fine art into which I enjoy adding design, and like to incorporate other mediums such as pencil, charcoal and ink. I am influenced to an extent by Celtic design, iconic symbols and Art Noveau which I like to modernise or adapt.
