An expressive piece combining a mix of media to create a blend of abstract realism. The gestural charcoal drawing of an expectant mother was first fixed from the back with shellac in expressive strokes that would then still be visible in a luminous like effect under the layer of translucent black plaka paint strokes in the front.
The linear accidental effects from the paint caused by the natural puckering of the paper when wet gives further dimensional layering and interest to the piece.
The drawing was first fixed with shellac before stretching the paper over a stiff surface and then applying the black paint. Stretching the paper over a stiff surface before applying the wet media ensured the paper dried as flatly as possible. There still remains some wrinkling effects in the untouched blank parts of the paper. The piece was then removed from the stiff surface, trimmed and mounted on archival Japanese rice paper (with long ageing Artist's Adhesive) to reinforce the strength of the paper.

I have been incredibly lucky to be able to create art as my professional vocation for more than 15 years. Being able to explore and delve into this passion deeply full time, is a gift I am continually grateful for...
Style: I tend to lean towards realistic renderings with abstraction coming into play to hopefully create exciting & mentally stimulating pieces.. The human form is one of my favourite subjects at the moment but I am on a continuous journey of creative discovery in style and content..
Inspiration: Being of Anglo-Indian descent and growing up in the urban multi racial & cultural, sunny shores of Malaysia has undoubtedly shaped my worldview and driven me to always try to represent diversity in my work as much as possible. My conceptual pieces are usually developed and inspired by what lurks within the pages of my second love - books, and the inevitable influences of the unique and 'exciting' times we live in.. I see the persistent honing of my artistic skills as integral to creating, and exploring and developing my skills in differing mediums and techniques is one of the many amazing and ever inspiring parts of the process.
