2013 - 2016
While since graduation I have consistently used coloured pencils to create realistic subjects, my modes of presentation have gone through a number of changes over the early stages of my career. The most influential factor in this progression was changing from originally working on paper to using panels. This shift meant that the work no longer required the use of glazing and thus traditional picture framing in order to be presented. When combined with the discovery of a local and increasingly affordable laser-cutting service, it felt like an opportunity to explore pushing the boundaries of wall mounted, 2D artmaking. However, as time went on I missed the thick ornate frames and didn’t feel as though I was done manipulating them and thus, I have joyfully returned to doing so.
