I'm looking so intently at each of your paintings you post, always amazed by them! Creating these environments looks so extremely overwhelming. You must be blessed with a tremendous amount of time to practice. Tell me, what subject matter does your art degree focus on? I feel really hemmed in and dejected with my degree and I'm curious to know what sort of experience students have at other art schools. I enrolled in a visual art degree but the focus is so strongly centered on contemporary art, where the concept and philosophical underpinning behind each work is more important and assistance in actual drawing and painting techniques is for the most part ignored. Did you develop these skills on your own time or did your tuition help you progress?
