Artist Statement

Artist Statement

Drawing and painting came naturally to me from an early age and had turned into an obsession. As an artist, I am always looking for a glimpse or moment in nature, and I am constantly noticing designs and shapes, colour and texture, when I see it, I like to immerse myself at that moment and try and evoke that same sense of calm, well-being and good feelings into my paintings.

I would describe my artwork as impressionism with an abstract format. Working from my in-house studio, the materials I predominantly work with are acrylic and charcoal on round wood panels and canvas, building my paintings with layers of paint, scratching and rubbing back in areas to reveal underlying colours. Leaving charcoal marks features a lot in my works creating soft texture. 

The themes for my works precisely reflects my affection for nature, I observe, photograph, sketch and appreciate the simple beauty that surrounds me.
