Welcome to my online studio and gallery.
Art is, and always has been, appreciated differently by each viewer. My expressions in art are one way I can communicate to others the splendour I see in nature, landscapes, wildlife and faces of people I care about.
I started painting with acrylics and enjoyed the medium with its quick-drying characteristics—it was very forgiving! Recently I have expanded my palette to include oils and have learned that its nature allows me to blend paint and experiment with colour in a whole new way! This journey of discovery is very exciting! Not just with different media, and subject matter, but as an artist, learning who I am and how to express myself with paint.

|Why do I paint? Over the years I have expressed myself creatively in many ways, but when I began painting, it was like coming home after a long journey. I can render a landscape with near photo-realism, or enhance the colours and loosen my strokes to show the viewer how I see nature. I can paint a figure or a face, but what story does it tell? Light and life are themes that are revisited often in my work. I hope you enjoy the new paintings as much as I have enjoyed painting them!|
