With a preference for acrylics and mixed media, we focus on abstract* and semi abstract** styles.
* Abstract Art: a combination of shapes, forms, lines and colors to interpret a subject-matter, without necessarily having something recognisable in the picture.
** Semi Abstract Art: The subject remains recognisable although the forms are stylised in a manner similar to abstract art. (ie, we are not spending hours making it look like a photo!)
