My artwork reflects aspects of my life.; my designs are inspired by how I observe, and I interpret the world. My work represents a visual communication of a series of pictures captured with the camera, to then  been recreated and manipulated in different medium styles.  This allows me to express myself through a variety of ideas. I  like to include people and thoughts in my drawings and digital artwork, because body language is an expression of human emotion. Before I start my artwork, I mind map and sketch to gather ideas. For my fine artwork I like to paint thick curved lines with a brush onto the canvas. I used toothpicks to scratch the paint, maintaining the curved line drawings. The thickness of the paint gives a textural quality and makes the surface tactile.
