Creative Wanderings

What began in the confined and sporadic corners of sketchbooks, became a series of illustrations acting as a creative retreat, breaking me away from 960 grids and button styles.

I'm very much inspired by one of my favourite artists, Egon Schiele. The way he creates vulnerable, yet powerful glances at his subjects through imperfect, intentional lines is compelling.

I focus on the human form, usually female, for the organic space it takes up and embraces. The female body, even without limbs or features that represent identity, holds a certain power and elegance within her pose, reminiscent of marble statues of greek goddesses, still pristine in their time-weathered stances.

I like to use my own textures from photographs I've taken and collected.
