Bea Roberts

I have been painting and drawing more or less all my life and I had my first exhibition at a local library at age 14. My paintings are a playful, schizophrenic merging of techniques and ideas and I usually work in mixed media, creating contemporary artwork which has a rough, primitive, naivety.

Working intuitively and spontaneously I use collagraph printing techniques, brushes, sticks and other implements, as well as collage, to create my vigorous and slightly surreal artworks. I sell my work via the internet and from my studio and exhibitions etc.

I have participated in group shows, solo shows and juried exhibitions, and my work hangs in private collections all over the world, and has been used in several TV and film productions, including Channel 4's Cucumber, the new feature film 'The Ninth Life Of Louis Drax', starring Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul, and Fifty Shades of Grey's Jamie Dornan. Also, a new German TV drama, The Watcher, which is being filmed in Manchester.

My work is predominantly figurative. I am infinitely fascinated by faces, bodies, people. Sometimes these people are surreal or they turn into weird monsters or animals.
