I am a professional scenic artist, painting large scale backdrops, murals and scenery for the theatre, fashion and events industries. As a scenic artist I translates artistic visions into reality. I possess many abilities including the traditional fine art skills of sketching, photography and painting. As well as techniques such as marbling, trompe l’oeil, wood graining and texturing. My work is informed by my understanding of art history, architecture, period styles and motifs.
