Art making for me is a process. I want to express what I feel, understand and the space I inhabit. I need to see what I am painting. I like to be in its environment. I may not be able to paint it there, but I need to see, smell, and touch it. My five senses need to be activated, if I have that I’ll create a good piece.
Colour is huge in my creative process. When I see something, I look at the colours and the light. I am captured by these; they stimulate an urge to produce my own image of what I see and feel. What I see in my head I want to put on paper. As I paint, I am lead on a journey through colour, freedom, and image into the unknown. The final result gives me a sense of achievement. This leads to realistic, warm paintings with textured qualities in a variety of sizes from small to large.
