"I begin each artwork without a preconceived end result. Oftentimes inspired by a small area or detail of my own sketch or canvas, this is the starting point for an iPad drawing with which I can play, evoking moods by collaging, layering and adding colours. I re-scale and print my iPad drawing onto fine art paper, then start all over applying additional water, paper and oil-based media.
I focus on depicting objects that for me, signify people, embodiments of calm and happiness. I see my artworks as imbued with compassion & humanity, an antidote to the disruptions of current events. I hope viewers will feel drawn in, encouraged to look deeper, to escape, and to remain open to multiple interpretations.
