Large scale impasto oil portraits, painted with palette knives. My portraits are inspired by the concept of limited expression.

As a Fine Art student at the University of Leeds, my practice is constantly developing and expanding. Currently it evolves around the study of human interaction and expression. Drawing inspiration from the poem ‘The Quiet Word’ by Jeffery McDaniel, I am particularly in the idea of what we would choose to say and do if our ability to express ourselves was limited. What would you consider important to communicate? and to whom is it important to communicate with?
