Claudine West, Nottingham Member Since July 2009 Artist Statement If i could record my dreams in an instant. I would never get the enjoyment of recreating what i see, saw and screamed at. A vibrant rollercoaster of visions-some times so real they can haunt for days. I have painted, drawn and sculpted since a child. I work with oils and pastels mainly. I love the feel of the texture and colour that remains on my hands and underneath my fingernails for days. Knowing that something new has been born.Which will grow with time. Or it may salute itself as raw and not too over done. I am a musician (multi-instrumentalist)in the U.K. band 'The Idolins' and singer/songwriter. So my art is my art. I was born to create. It's good to feel alive..
