About

My graphic design background influences my style of rendering in the use of bold graphic images and colours. I use my design skills to interpret the content of photographs and simplify the images and colours to create my work. I have been an exhibiting visual artist since 2000 and have experimented with various art processes and mark making techniques. I have also been involved in and exposed to a variety of art practices. Combining techniques I have used in the past with newly learned techniques, my artwork as evolved over time. My current body of work still relies on bold colours and graphic images, but I have added the element of texture, using layering techniques and mixed media. I believe I have added depth and substance to my work. My business Jmac-art is another facet to my arts practice, using digitally manipulated images from my paintings to use in the production of a range of homewares. I have also had the opportunity to teach, firstly at tertiary level, and now as a workshop facilitator. I love people and it is a great way to share skills and experiences with others who share a passion for art.
