BA (Hons) Fine Art | Class of 2020
My artwork developed from my diagnosis of breast cancer. I want to share my journey through my paintings, considering the mental and physical changes taking place. I develop my ideas through a range of both, sculpture and painting. I mainly use acrylics, mixed from a wide range of carefully chosen tones. For me, colour is everything, that will make the canvas great and I use a wide range of brush strokes, when applying the paint, to create my abstract designs.
My work is a story about survival, well-being and empowerment. The figures, within my paintings, are strong, beautiful women and provide an insight into the deepest thought and feelings, that breast cancer evokes. I hope to provide a relationship, with the viewer, a conversation that needs no words. It is important for myself, that my paintings are aesthetically pleasing and stand alone as a painting, whilst creating awareness and positive understanding of breast cancer.
