Awards & Recognition
Art has always been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I was first introduced to oil painting by my Grandfather, who was a talented landscape artist.
Growing up, art is what gave me confidence, made me feel relaxed and challenged me at the same time, I guess that’s why I kept creating and still love it today.
Artworks that uplift and make you happy are what we all need to be surrounded by. This influences my artwork greatly.
My aim is not to represent things precisely but to bring joy through texture, colour and a little playfulness. Inspiration comes from all around but mostly I am inspired by nature and colour.
I take a messy, and free flowing approach to my art. Even when starting with a subject or idea in mind, I freely deviate from the plan. I love the unexpected surprises and naturalness that come from a relaxed style of painting.
My paintings use an abundance of paint – I can’t have too much paint on the canvas. Thick, buttery paint layered on with a palette knife gives it that extra dimension. People often like to touch my art, and I love that.
Colourful impressionistic style Australian Landscapes with a dash of pink and highly textured still life and floral garden paintings are a great love of mine, but I am always trying new things which helps my style to keep evolving.
You can can find my artworks in private collections in the US, UK, Germany, South Korea, New Zealand and Australia.
