“My artworks can be a reaction to my immediate environment or an attempt to depict the vivid landscape of my dreams”
Crees explores the divergence of opposing themes and the concept of duality as she embarks on an enchanting journey of creative method and visual melody.
Artworks playfully flirt with surrealism in her elaborately decorative process. Her collaged patterns and bold colours depict an abstract interpretation of the things she finds most beautiful.
Her acute attention to detail sees Crees currently painting two unique paths through the contemporary street and fine art landscapes simultaneously.
The philosophy might change but the motivation always remains a compulsion for colourful creation.
