Art has always been part of my life for as long as I can remember. I was first introduced to oil painting by my Grandfather who was an extremely talented traditional style landscape artist.  I have grown to experiment in photography, graphic design, ceramics – the list goes on. However, I am at my happiest with a paintbrush in hand and approach the canvases with a free-flowing, unplanned and unpredictable mindset. Even when starting with a subject or idea in mind, I freely deviate from the plan. I love the unexpected surprises and naturalness that comes from a relaxed style of painting. Colour and texture take centre stage in my work, which forge thick, layered and colourful landscapes.
