Artists & Makers

My earliest memories are of art and creation...


For many years I used pen and paper to explore my thoughts, spending hours a day at my journal. Everything changed when I discovered that painting allowed more freedom and clarity to articulate my ideas, thoughts & emotions.
In my work I seek to complement the moments I encounter. I attempt breaking down life to its visual essentials light, dark, balance, movement, tone. In so doing perhaps I can reveal a new perspective. I enjoy capturing the essence of a moment, telling a story by diversity of color and pattern that the eye and camera cannot see.
I consider a painting complete when the idea I am trying to express matches the thoughts in my mind. Often this process leaves me naked and feeling exceptionally vulnerable. If somebody, while looking at my artwork gets that special feeling of something personal, I'm satisfied.

I never experience 'artist block', wondering what to paint, only the dilemma of what to paint next. I wonder how I'll ever find time to capture all the visions going through my head. The more I paint, the more I leave unpainted.
