I love natural forms, vibrant colours and an element of play in my paintings. I completed a Diploma of Art & Creativity with the Learning Connexion in 2011. I had lost touch with art for quite some time until recently. I am now a member of Art for Me (REAP) and have found my way back into art.
This was one of the first paintings I created after 3 years of not doing any art. I had a lot of pent-up energy in regards to painting and it had to come out. I painted, printed, glued and poured paint. The result startled even me, but I like it. I think there is a lot of power in this picture and I love this wild mix.
Covid-19 made me more aware how precious life and family is. Lockdown made me turn back to art after 3 years of not painting. Because I got a bit bored during that time I started to draw cartoon monsters, which was a starting point for me.
