Most of my ideas are derived from what is around me – nature, colour and light play a big part. I tend to simplify what I see and not be too literal. I try to capture the essence of an emotion with my paintings and project it to the viewer, whether it is to bring a smile with a fun illustration or promote a deeper connection through my abstracts. I frequently get the urge to experiment with different mediums and techniques, my paintings range from traditional to abstract. Changing themes keeps me focused and the subject matter fresh and exciting.
