I paint digitally and in oils and acrylics on canvas. When using traditional media I paint most often at a scale of 4’ x 4’, and work from home. My paintings have as a whole spanned a broad area of interests. They have explored my interests in music, modern graphic design, painting’s history, modern music, graffiti, Japanese art and culture such as comics(manga) cartoon (animé), toys,modern-music sub culture, also fantasy and sci- fi illustration genres and video game art. Modern and past; contemporary art Post-Modernism and classical modernism. This portfolio predominantly showcases digital illustration a passion which has grown to rival the traditional painting.
There is a discipline to working on both practices, as not to lose that which each medium has given my practice. I hope to create work which takes strength from both of these rich seems of creative design output and energy. I am looking to push the illustration side of my works and this folio concentrates on this, looking at illustrations and concept art for video games, board games or card games.
I am disabled, I have a muscular skeletal chronic pain condition which makes working in conventional situations difficult. I am looking to work from home and am very happy to take on art work on a freelance basis. I have no studio experience as my disability has made gaining real work experience difficult. I have a post graduate diploma and a 2.1 degree in fine art.
My work is predominantly 2d although I have recently taken upon learning z-brush, starting with z-brush core. So far I have been using it with Photoshop to create illustrations , although I am hoping to develop into 3d printed figures.
