Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
“I wanted to explore the push and pull of various techniques and their effect on the visual impact of an image. The start point of the postcards was large-scale charcoal life drawings, which I embellished with imagery in ink and oil. Then I played with them in Procreate before coming back to analogue and cutting in lino and colouring.”
