About

I am an artist that does not like to be confined to one medium or technique. I love colour and I love to accentuate the hints of colour that you see within nature.
I draw, paint, sculpt, wood burn and do timber work, mainly hollow wooden surfboards.

My recent creative journey started just over 2 years ago, what started as creativity therapy has led me on a journey I would never have thought imaginable, and whilst at times it has been hard I would not change a minute of it.

Here is a bit of background about myself and the journey that has led me to where I am now.

I left school at the age of 16 and I completed an Advanced Diploma in Fine Arts in the following four years. I concentrated mostly on sculptures and my true love was in wood carving.

After completing my studies life got busy with work, marriage and kids. I still kept my hands busy with different things, but finding time was always a struggle.

The last 2 years I have spent my time focusing on creating and I have found a love for palette knife painting. I try and paint almost everyday and now this fire is re-ignited within myself I know that I will always find the time to keep it burning.

I once read a quote that said 'The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul', I am not sure who said it, but it sure resonates with me and it has been a desire I have had my whole life, from winning my first colouring in competition at the age of 2, to the desire that still grows inside of me now.
