Artist statement: Every painting gives me immense joy and satisfaction, and represents all my feelings and energy of that particular time.
A painting begins with a concept only, seeking subjective emotions and responses to the subject matter. This takes on its own development throughout a process of layering, rubbing back, glazing and reapplying until subtle images suggest the course of direction to each piece of artwork. My work gains richness, luminosity and depth, evoking beauty, serenity and warmth. My work has developed as I have as a person. When I look over past work, I see direct influences and reasons for what I have produced. I have a sense of beauty and contentment around me now, which I feel, reflects in my art today.
