Art for me is a passion, a desire, sheer joy, and therapy!
It is a way of expressing my creativity, it is one way I feel productive and worthwhile, it is a vehicle to express my love for the amazing, powerful country I find myself in, but most of all it’s a way to connect with people! Art turns people into friends! Art reveals friendships that would not have happened any other way, allowing laughter to erupt and connections to be made. Art has a way of making me happy!
My chosen art-form is painting, and I love mixing my media.
A typical painting for me at the moment starts off with a textured undercoat, acrylic underpainting, oilbar drawing/painting and oil paints on top. Currently I’m also experimenting with adding in glued on paper, charcoal, pencil and chinagraph, with Alkyd finishing touches.
