My inspiration comes from absolutely everything. It's important that what I paint is something that has touched me, whether it's from a photo I've taken, or it could be from a feeling in the moment. I enjoy painting without attachment to an outcome and it always surprises me when a message surfaces.
I delight in the dobbing on of colour to create a whole, and enjoy the interplay of light on a subject. It's hard to categorize me into any particular style as I like variety in my art, as I do in all areas of my life.
My vivid use of colour and bold brush strokes are indicative of my personality. I feel much passion for many things in life and bringing this passion to life on canvas or paper is necessary for my soul.
