Artist Statement

“I am an amateur artist endeavouring to get into the habit of painting with acrylics. I am quite proficient with coloured pencils but feel the need to transfer drawings into a more dramatic and lasting medium. I have always preferred paintings of human figures & anatomy to nature & landscapes. So my subject matter often involves hearts, brains, skulls and embryos. I especially adore artist Alex Grey who adds ethereal auras and lines of energy into his artwork as if he is embracing every aspect of the individual, from the physical to the spiritual. I would love to reach his level of creativity and technical skill one day.” – Jennifer Clowes / Juniper
