  "Make art from your heart, from your cultural lens, it is freeing to express your inner self." (Loleitha Evelyn, 2013)

 The themes I have chosen to explore reflect the subjects that I am most passionate about such as identity, ‘race’ and gender representation, all reflected along the historical continuum of world events. My intention for reviewing these elements of life is to produce a series of meaningful artistic images which impact on a deeper level for all who experience my work. I investigate the perceptions of people of colour and particularly in this instance; the ‘Black British’ experience. 

 As a trained Beauty Therapist and Sports Massage Therapist, I also have an interest in body form, tones and well-being; these also resonate in my work.

 Being a Woman of Colour I naturally and intuitively focus on the human condition, physiognomy and the varying perceptions of People of Colour. The style of my work is figurative and expressionistic; however, it leans towards me probing and questioning perception beyond surface level. What shapes our perception and ideology?.

 I use a variety of mediums and materials in my Artwork, however, currently, I have chosen to work with Painting, Casting and Sculpture. Working in 3D with these mediums support my artistic processes and what I wish to produce and share with the world. My work is concept-driven and explorative of racial illustrations, all of which is very evident in my Artwork. The scale of my Work also varies from almost life-size to life-size, although the paintings are mainly scaled to the size of canvases deliberately selected.

I hope you, the viewer fully engages in a contemplative and reflective process as you journey through my artistic process.
