Art is a calling and a gift and I strongly feel that being able to create Art is a gift. To capture the beauty from the simplest expression or a scene and bring them to life in a piece of Art is a journey (the excitement, the discoveries, the frustration and challenges faced through the creative process).
I enjoy painting a variety of subjects from wildlife to landscapes and portraits to stilllife and anything that is challenging. My medium for art is usually Acrylics or Oils, I also use Pastels and coloured pencils for a change. I draw and sketch on a daily basis which helps me to critique and improve my own work.
Since I am self taught I developped my own style of painting. I was never influenced to follow any style or any Artist during my early years.
I believe that Art is a form of communication and connection to others. My goal is to get the viewer’s attention to the natural world and reconnect them with nature.
“No better way is there to learn to love Nature than to understand Art. It dignifies every flower of the field. And, the boy who sees the thing of beauty which a bird on the wing becomes when transferred to wood or canvas will probably not throw the customary stone” Oscar Wilde
