My work comes from my life experience. It flows in the stream of my continued love and wonder at life’s bounty and scarcity. I discovered the art world at a very early age, introduced to it by my Aunt. She made a point of taking me to exhibitions at the National Gallery or gala openings where I saw the buzz and interest people took in art.
By the age of fourteen I was painting on a daily basis, using any materials at hand, coming from a large family this seemed to set me aside from the other children and gave me the space for contemplation and focused work. I have always been a hard working focused individual, and self motivated, I loved the space that painting created for me.
Over the years my creative work has expanded my understanding of the world, my Aunt also introduced me to the idea of the supernatural, travel, and music. I have spent a great deal of time travelling and meeting people and learning about their cultures, especially India.
You will see in my work an underlying method but a very open and fluid style of working, the work I create heals and opens up locked up aspects of myself, but the real motivation comes from creating works of art for people; what I make is a gift to the world and to the people that need to be lifted and transformed. I encourage you to contact me to talk art, life, creativity and the hope and joy the artistic path brings to you and those you meet.
The very best of what I have learned and truly appreciate from my creative endeavours is how it inspires others to start of this path, I encourage you to stick with it.
