artist's statement

I see the painting, before I've even fully taken in the image or object, it's instinctive. I've always painted, as a child, and as an adult. In 2014 I started to paint full time and I don’t have any doubt in my mind that this is what I'm meant to do, I believe in me. My distinctive BECKSY style evolved from frustration and inner torment of being helmed in by hyperrealist pieces I was churning out. My use of the palette knife set me free, to paint with some vibrancy, instinct, expression and a tangibility, which can only be unleashed why I can truly be myself, I can orchestrate colours to my tune, most importantly I can maintain integrity.
