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 my photographs, and simplify the images and colours to create my work.
I have experimented with various art processes and mark making techniques and been involved in and exposed to a variety of art practices. Combining techniques I have used previously with these new experiences, my artwork has evolved. My current body of work still relies on bold colours and graphic images, but I have added the element of texture by using layering techniques and mixed media. I believe I have added depth and substance to my work.
I taught in my field of Graphic Design at tertiary level but now share my visual art journey as a private art tutor and workshop presenter. I am very involved with community art projects in the Bayside suburb of Wynnum.
There are two dimensions to my art practice: exhibiting artist and the business of jmac-art. Through my brand jmac-art, I design and hand produce quality designer merchandise using images from my original artwork.
