I am an artist who thrives on variety and challenge. I have a passion for colour, vibrant or subdued, as is evident in my work.
My style is thematically and stylistically diverse, deliberate and intended. It doesn't fit happily under a single descriptor as it encompasses impressionism, whimsical, surreal and the absurd.
As an artist my greatest challenge is to produce paintings that transfer my abstract ideas and mental visions to tangible images on canvas. I create my images from ideas and inspirations derived from eclectic sources such as common phrases, play on words, juxta positioning objects with objects and animals with objects, homonyms, colour journeys and from nature itself.
I pay particular attention to placement, exploration into colour and composition in each artwork. I use various techniques such as pointillism, sponging, impasto work and I am never afraid to try new methods to produce each piece.
I am an intuitive artist who remains seriously committed to my art and I intend to continue exploring ideas, processes and techniques for may years to come.
