Biography


I started drawing at a young age, when I was told to sit still and be quiet, which was usually at church, dentist or doctor's office. I would be handed a pen and an old envelope or the back of a grocery list. I would draw the people around me, which I still do today if I have a long wait, as I remain a person who can't sit still for any length of time. Painting is a calming and meditative process for me, making art takes me to a place where time stands still, where everything disappears except the subject I'm focused on and a story to go with it. I try to paint or draw everyday to maintain a sense of calm in my life. If for some reason I can't do this I'm gathering ideas, taking photos or doing research for a new piece or series of work, which I enjoy almost as much as the painting itself.
 
While I enjoy painting landscapes and still life, I love painting the figure. We all relate to human emotions and experiences, it's universal. I use figures to express how I feel or what I want to say, using colour, texture and mood to convey this..no mater the subject. Dramatic lighting is what excites and inspires me to paint. I prefer my paintings to be contemplative, mysterious, and a bit melancholy. I strive for all my art to be beautiful, thought provoking and timeless.
 
I have no technical art background but self-teach with independant study or research of old masters, books, galleries and museums. 
I prefer to use a limited colour palette, palette knife or flat brushes for impressionism and bold strokes.
