Artist Statement


My Major Project focuses on the uncanny, the eerie and the mysterious: things or places that give the viewer a feeling that something is slightly ‘off’ with the images shown. The project originally stemmed from an interest in the paranormal, the supernatural and folklore. However, the uncanny really interests me and I feel it catches the viewer out slightly, as it presents something familiar which should initially put you at ease, but there is always something unexpected in some way, so I feel it has more of an impact. I started by painting from reference images from my personal archive, but I then went on to experiment with the images in Photoshop and found that this was the most effective means of achieving the visual results I wanted.
