Artist Statement

Watercolour as a medium comes with an unmovable stigma. It has always been viewed as an traditional painting style your Grandad uses when he goes to the beach to paint the boats on the weekend. The aim is to shake and challenge these 'traditional seaside landscape' perceptions, to produce work with a much more dynamic and contemporary vibrancy, to this otherwise 'uncool' painting medium.
