Artist Statement

"The protagonist of Stephen Crane's The Red Badge of Courage was a young Union soldier during the US Civil War. Instead of relying heavily on an image of a soldier I wanted to portray the conflict with colour. Specifically, I used the colours of the North and the South with representations of the flags used at the time." - Meredith Watson

Historically, I am a traditional artist (painter). I have recently switched to digital art with a focus on graphic design.
