I’m inspired by nature, its forms, textures, beauty and array of gorgeous colours, they truly are a wonder. For me the sky evokes another world which is quite ethereal. I find myself resonating with its ever changing moods. It fuels my imagination and stirs my emotions. For me it’s another world which can be dramatic, exciting, peaceful and romantic. It’s a world where anything is possible.
Once my emotions are stirred, I’m compelled to capture its raw and powerful energy on canvas. The paints comes alive in my hands and they become a part of me. I find myself swirling amongst the clouds, drawn in by the light and uplifted by the colours.
Emotions do play a huge part in my work. I can truly express myself when I paint. It’s helped me to get through the toughest of times, and has given me hope when I desperately needed it. For me having another world to go to has been crucial, my imagination has been my escape from reality.
