About

My art is an expression of energy and emotion. My paintings represent my deep love and respect for nature. I believe that beauty is all around us and can be experienced everyday. It is these glimpses of nature that I capture as snap-shots of energy‚ expressing the aesthetic feelings that inspire. By using bright‚ bold‚ vivid colours I invite the viewer’s attention‚ evoking personal emotions and feelings.

Influences

With a background in graphic design & illustration my painting leans more to abstract interpretations rather that precise representations. My love of fresh‚ wild colours along with bold brush strokes has been heavily influenced by my appreciation and interest in Fauvism. For my most recent paintings I have been working mostly with acrylics and different mediums using bright‚ quirky colours to express a fun-loving spirit and positive energy through my paintings.
