I am an artist and work in a variety of mediums, drawing in different forms and increasingly printing. My practice explores internal worlds from the surface, tracing the experience of living referencing a range of issues; movement, femininity, ageing, Marks on paper are of the utmost importance here, I see lines, shapes and colours making representations of inner and outer worlds. I move from the figurative image to evocative impressions. My works at times have become lighter more ethereal, making suggestions rather than statements. Then again I might work with searing colour recently using suggestions and impressions of movement.
The surface evokes what lies beneath: Blemishes can and do evoke humour and on occasion the carnivaleasque within my own work
The blog on my website vivlm.com records my art journey, an artwork in itself.
