I am blessed to live and paint in this beautiful country.
Ever since I could hold a paint brush I've had a passion for art. Painting abstract art that express emotions, adversities and experiences that humanity endures or celebrates is something that deeply nourishes my soul.
After years of life challenges I have now been able to dedicate myself full time to my creative calling.
My art is usually large abstract pieces filled with lots of texture, sgraffito and mark making using only the best artist quality acrylic and oil paints and pastels on stretched canvas, which I additionally prime in my studio using only high quality gesso.
I title my artwork to reflect what inspired me when creating each painting. I hope that my artwork invokes the viewer's individual emotions and induces further exploration and personal interpretation.
Everyday, before I enter my studio, I revisit my favourite inspirational quote by renown artist Helen Frankenthaler, which helps me leave any limitations at the door...
“There are no rules. That is how art is born, how breakthroughs happen. Go against the rules or ignore the rules. This is what invention is about”
