Changing my process

After beginning to investigate aerial landscapes I feel that their generalized composition has meant that I can really explore my process. Recently, I have become very interested in how the paint flows and how this natural process is repeated in the natural world around us.

August Family Outings

August Family Outings

Over the past week, my dad and brothers stayed with me in Aberystwyth. It was so nice to show my brothers my university town and explore more of Wales together. We visited Nant Y Arian, where they feed the Red Kites; we watched the Incredibles II in Commodore cinema; we went to the butterfly palace […]
