I use oil paints on canvas to reimagine figures in my community. Bringing to life new sensations and depths of feeling through a balance of realistic depiction and intuitive expressionism through colour, rhythm and subject matter.

Painting is a tool of personal healing for me and being vulnerable enough to express my personal
struggles/emotions through my art is the most important aspect of my work. Behind my paintings is a range of interests, from psychology, classic fiction, nature, philosophy to spirituality. that help shape the direction and mood of my paintings in their own ways.

Francis Bacon, Van Gogh and Egon Schiele are strong artistic inspirations, recently Vermeer has
become a solid source of awe and inspiration and I am looking forward to how this inspiration
informs my approach to my practice as time goes on.
