Profile

Art is the language I understand; it is how I communicate. Art feeds my soul, providing infinite pleasure from viewing or participating. My happiest moments are when I am in the presence of beautiful art. I can only hope to give someone else that gift by sharing my own.

Nature also brings me great comfort, the sense of being part of nature rather than separate from it. Being in nature allows me to gain perspective and rewards me with calmness, mindfulness, and being present—Stop… Reflect…

My motivation to be an artist comes from my relationship with art and nature. I enjoy creating art by piecing together elements of my visual experience and exploring the interconnectedness between place, memory, and emotion. I let my ideas develop until the best medium presents itself. Printmaking is my preferred art medium, and I enjoy experimenting with different techniques. The key elements of my work are mark-making and colours. My prints are a combination of sight, recollection, and careful planning. I am drawn to vibrant colours, contrast, and composition, often using colours from the moment.

My artistic styles range from expressionistic and intuitive abstracts to very detailed, almost botanical pieces. However, colours and textures have always been the main focus of my work. I predominantly use the continuous line method when sketching plein air; it’s a way to capture the essence of the moment.

As you explore my creations, I hope they bring you as much joy as I experienced in their creation. May they inspire you, evoke emotions, and even transport you to a different world. Your appreciation is the ultimate reward for my artistic endeavours.
