My mutated diamonds represent a common desire: wealth and social status, and how they can morph into excessive aspiration and lust. The diamonds become something more than what they are, something exorbitant, verging on grotesque.
I layer many thin washes of paint to create colours that glow on the canvas or paper. It’s a long process, but very satisfying when I finally achieve the colours I’m pursuing.
