My belief as an artist comes down to a simple principle - to paint the beauty in life that inspires me – whatever that may be. And it is that spark of inspiration that influences me to put brush and palette knife to canvas.
As a person and an artist, I am multi-faceted, therefore, I am motivated by many things creatively.
I am inspired by color; sometimes strong, sometimes subtle.
I am inspired by light and the way light transforms the ordinary into a thing of beauty. Sometimes light can be harsh, sometimes it can be soft and sometimes it can create beautiful mood.
I am inspired by shape, lines, curves and the how they interact which creates tension or harmony.
I am inspired by the beauty of the human form in its infinite variety.
Sometimes, I am simply inspired by a thought.
For me, it’s not the subject matter that is important, it is the inspiration from my heart which finds a way to speak on the canvas - which I hope connects with yours.
