I have painted since childhood. My dad encouraged me to develop my own style, as he was an accomplished award winning wood carver. Discovery is one of the things I like most about art- there is always something new or old to discover and it is always exciting.
In 2008, I was diagnosed with a rare incurable disease which disabled me. The only thing I could still do was paint. I am inspired and challenged to capture people’s moods, by rendering the individual and environment, coupled with a unique and individual painting style.
My work is both abstract and representational, using brush work and style that reveals “the artist’s hand”. This affords opportunity for creativity. I want my paintings to be fresh. Flow and pacing are important – warmth, coolness, awkward or fluid; there are no limits.
My goal is to “capture the moment”.
