For me, art is instinctual. I always knew I would be an artist because I am compelled to create visual images. Wherever I go, I look to see how I can translate what I see into a painting.
I love colour and have never been afraid to use it in unconventional ways. Colour is a communicator of emotion. Dark shades contrasting with bright hues are inspiring and exciting. I don't have a problem sacrificing a realistic view for a vibrant visual that is brilliantly coloured. Colour implies energy and emotion, and I use it to reflect the emerging spirit of my subject matter as I see it.
My artwork takes a whimsical view of wildlife. Often I portray my subjects head-on looking out at the viewer. This angle is not to be confrontational but rather more amusing and curious, taking away the formality that reality sometimes possesses. My work connects people with the animals and birds surrounding us and shows others a different view of the wildlife inhabitants of this world.
