Portrait of Glover 2, 2021

48 × 38 cm
Portraiture is enduring. A blind drawing conjures intense and plain, it captures what is there and interestingly finds what could be there. Discovering the identity and curious quirks of the subject; what underlying feelings can be found? I am interested in how line creates movement, and this movement shifts and merges the image into enigma for the observer to resolve.
I am a dedicated visual artist with a passion for creating. My paintings of portraits and figurative subjects explore abstract line and fractured shapes to capture movement and emotive scenes. More recently I have been developing this style with still life and landscape painting. With nearly 20 years teaching Art, Visual Communication and Photography to secondary students, I have a vast experience in a range of artforms, mediums and design programs, occasionally freelancing in design.
