My art practice to date is observing society and its environment through juxtapositions of the human element and its surroundings. This can be from direct observation of the subject or from the imaginary world. I constantly refer to the work of the cubists in my drawing and painting using simple geometric formulas to break forms into planes of light, colour and space. I work with oil, acrylic, pastel and charcoal as well as multi media. I use photography and computer technology in my research practice.
