About

“I am interested in life cycles‚ both human and divine and like the Fauves and Expressionists‚ represent emotions through colour. My paintings are about the mind and contemplative states‚ rather than action or narrative. They reflect the process of waiting‚ hoping‚ wishing‚ praying and belief in healing and transformation. My art is symbolic but vibrant. I am influenced by the turbulent emotions in Van Gogh’s paintings as well as the colours and draftsmanship of Brett Whiteley.”
