UK based aspiring painter. Drawing inspiration from everything I see, hear, think of or dream about. My medium of choice is oil but recently, after working a fair deal with it, I've discovered a whole new love for acrylics. I also enjoy watercolours, ink, pastels (soft and oil) and various gels and mediums (clear tar, pumice, texture gels, molding pastes, etc). I paint or sketch everyday with rare exceptions and I learn something new with every brush stroke. My work is quite diverse as I am a rather curious person and I like to experiment a lot; hence, I've not decided to stick to one single style yet, not until I've tried everything else possible. However, I have a fascination for American Tonalism and expressionist/semi-abstract figurative art and most of my recent work reflects this. When I paint I completely disconnect with the material world and I sink deeply into my immense inner universe. I'm drawn to unique shapes, unusual subjects, odd angles and interesting perspectives. I have a preference for forceful expressive brush strokes. I can see beauty in almost anything, even in what others might call grotesque, dark, ugly or sad. I am vastly self taught, although I've had a few artist friends around who've made the learning journey a lot easier. I don't have any artistic education, my academic background being in psychology. I hold a master's degree in Forensic Psychology and I've been working in Mental Health since 2016, this being the reason why some of my works bear psychological themes or a touch of beautiful melancholy. My favorite paintings would be at the borderline between reality and magic with strange characters, eerie or mysterious atmosphere and unusual subjects. I'm most fulfilled when I've managed to paint uncertainty, doubt and mystery whilst maintaining a simple composition. I would like to sell on Artfinder as I think it would enable me to reach a new market, rendering my art visible to a wider audience.
