What medium do you work with, and why have you chosen them?

I work mainly with oil paints as I like the way I am able to build up an image, rubbing back into the work and painting over - creating a layered image. These layers allow me to create a composition of multiple places, talking to my ideas on the feeling of a place rather than a specific likeness.

How does your artwork get from initial concept to exhibition stage?

My work usually begins with a sketch done from plain air or photos taken of the place. Most of my works are a collection of places, rather than one singular place. Back in the studio I like to lie my images on the floor to work from multiple references at once. This allows me to create a reimagined place.

Can you tell us a little more about your creative working environment/studio?

I am currently working out of an old warehouse, which has great open space where I can create my larger works. The space is great, but since art school I am missing the community of a shared studio space. So that's something I would like to move towards.
