Painting is how I process life. I strive to convey an energy and emotion through my work that you will respond to and ultimately create your own interpretation.

I am concerned with aesthetics and drawn to beauty but I define beauty in art as something that is harmonious yet provocative.  I strive for hand done marks and bold gestures because I embrace the messy imperfection of being human.

My inspiration for a painting comes from nature, from bits of poetry, colour, forms that I’ve experienced, world events and primarily the deep joy and suffering of living.

I don’t want to force or will a painting to a certain outcome. I am deeply involved in the process, the making of the art, for at the core, it is my deep reverence of painting that is truly the meaning behind all the work.
