The beauty of flesh, sinews, veins and the landscape of the form are what excite me. Curves, heft, intense color and exaggeration of line....contrasting textures; fabric, water, wood.... against skin......
I play with contrast, colour, with twisting flesh, mood and perspective.I need to use strong, often undiluted colour, exaggerating and heightening reality.My influences come from classical painting and sculpture, my own experience in hand drawn effects animation and the rawness and honesty of the body....bringing a kind of dramatic beauty and dignity to simple imagery.
