Since leaving art college in 2005 I have always enjoyed the idea of capturing a ‘moment in time’ through photography  and freezing a moment in film , translating those moments into an expressive piece of work through the nature of oil paint and abstraction. Having attended workshops in the use of resin I found the immediacy of working with this  medium that dries quickly (unlike the slow, rich layering of oil) a challenge and an opportunity to experiment.  As a result I have created a series of work based on our changing planet.   Using aerial photography captured from film and tv I have transferred these images onto  paper in watercolour and used these as a source to realise how our planet may look in years to come. I enjoy the juxtaposition of  the two ways of working allowing me freedom to explore and develop my painting further.
