The concept for the 2012 Olympic series is based on my continued interest in depicting the dynamism of sport through oil painting. My work engages in the visual aspects of human anatomy and the atmosphere incorporated with sporting events throughout the World. I wanted to highlight a vibrancy through my paintings that encouraged future participation throughout the United Kingdom subsequent to the London 2012 Olympics. My experiences at Loughborough University has given me the opportunity to develop my work through a personal passion that is evident in my art practice. This series is dedicated to Loughborough Students Athletics Club.
