“Be Bright, Be Bold” is the largest painting yet. The intimidating 4 ft x 6 ft canvas was quite challenging both physically and artistically. I knew I wanted the image to be bright and eye-catching, compelling for the viewer to look at. Before deciding on any subjects I knew I wanted the piece to be a bright, warm, red. 

I chose the foreshortened perspective as a challenge for myself. Imagining and re-discovering familiar subjects in new and odd ways is genuinely a lot of fun, and this choice brought the whole piece together in a really exciting way. 

My favourite subject in art is the human figure. In recent months I have been working with a plus-sized model, she was an amazing person to work with and in a lot of ways made me feel more confident about my body. I adore depicting unique bodies and features in my art, they have plenty of visual interest and show the beauty of how diverse humans are.
