Some of my project work in the UK during university focused on streetscapes and painting in a graffiti like style. I then began to paint personal themes of imagination and the child fantasy world in a similar graffiti style.
My final year college project involved an interest in perception and the reflected self. I worked from photographs, distorting my own facial reflections in an underwater mirror and translating them into portrait paintings.
Artists that have inspired me include Chuck Close, Marc Chagall, Picasso, Guyasamin, Matisse, Gerhard Richter
