I work primarily in the digital medium, fusing airbrush technique with small insertions of photographic textures, aiming to make paintings vibrate between the real and the surreal. What I love about digital art is that it inhabits another dimension, it’s a bit like creating ghosts. You can make prints of it, you can project it, you can have it show up on screens – but where is the ‘original’ really” I love this about it. I work in Adobe Photoshop, and use a Wacom Tablet.
My objective when creating a piece is to create art that tells a story or expresses an idea, or an emotion. It’s the idea that comes to me first, then I seek ways in which to explain it visually, via metaphor and symbolism usually. The subject matter needn’t always be serious, however. I like light twists on things, humour, I love history and art history and I guess this shows a little in my work. I try to make my art as accessible and understandable as possible. To me, a piece is ‘done’ when I feel I’ve achieved a result that is both aesthetically pleasing as well as communicative. I like to make connections with the viewer, it’s a form of dialogue.
"I know Lisa's work for many years, as we publish our works on the same art site. I think she is great illustrator. She uses similar techniques as i use for my own illustrations, I really admire her for her sweet style and imagination."
