My work takes its source from found images, primarily old black and white photographs of strangers discovered in charity shops, flea markets and antique stores.

Work of art I would like to make

I am starting to carry on from where I left off with my degree show work as I continue to use found images as source material but with new ideas such as playing with new relationships. I would like to experiment with taking different people from different photographs and even different time periods and see what can come from that. I will continue experimenting with both large scale and small scale works, depending on what the figures I am painting are saying. My paint technique and colour palette will also be determined by the images I find and what they are saying to me and what I want them to say to their audience.
