I have a background in mixed media practise, including paint, textiles, photography and clay. For me, art should take the form of escapism and experience; it should inspire an emotional reaction and transcend beyond the intellectual response.

I've been thinking about the proposal I received for 'Megalithic'. I started by researching into the patterns used within this period and made sketches of the swirly shapes. Eventually I made a painting which features these shapes, but also the dark gloomy atmosphere of much of the stone ruins I found from the Megalithic period. I feel like I'd like to work more with this idea, perhaps creating another painting on a larger scale and submerging myself more in the hypnotic spirals.
