Artist’s statement

I’ve created an artwork that explores my inner world, known only to me. My paintings aim to capture and document a moment in time. These moments juxtapose the chaos and order of my teenage life. I used the medium of alkyds to express the subtle yet inherent beauty of my world. I approached my work through a traditional style with immense attention to colour harmony, capturing the light and serenity within these everyday objects. I hope that through my work the audience reflects on the insignificant, and its importance in their life.
