"A good painting to me has always been like a friend. It keeps me company, comforts and inspires." Hedy Lamarr
My approach to art is simple: I am inspired by anything that catches my eye and holds my attention, and I try to create art that does the same.
In terms of the artistic process, I am quite instinctive. I paint whatever comes into my mind, often changing direction mid-way through a piece. If I am painting a place that evokes emotion such as a vibrant city, I want to convey the character and atmosphere more than the reality of the buildings themselves.
I am a very visual person so I love colour and much of my abstract work reflects this. I also like creating art that people want to touch, and I often use heavy texture to invite further exploration.
Ultimately, my aim is always to capture on canvas something that looks good and makes you feel good, it's as simple as that.
