NORA BLACK

I have worked as a graphic designer and creative director for over 20 years and wanted to use the diploma course to experiment with creating art for myself rather than a client. I have found myself primarily drawn to painting portraits of people I know well. Currently I am exploring painting on found materials, generally vintage and heavily patterned, using layers of acrylic, charcoal, crayon and ink, and sometimes adding to or altering them digitally, to build images that represent my sitters' inner lives and stories.

 

If I have the opportunity to study further, I would like to work in sculpture/3-D as well as continuing to experiment with combining physical and digital techniques.
