Artist Statement & Biography

“My paintings are a visual expression and interpretation of what I consider delightful, beautiful and inviting! My subject matter varies as my inspirations reveal themselves.

Because of it’s colour, richness, flexibility and texture, oil paint is my medium of choice. When I paint, my intention is to compose an image with colour, emotion and a pleasant mood that invites the viewer to be a part of the work and want to be there.”
