From an early age I loved painting. This was encouraged by my very artistic mother and her fashion designer sister. During my formal education I completed two science degrees but, even then, I preferred to hang around the art college and my best friends were artists. In the last few years I have had the freedom to follow my passion for art again.
Colours and Eyes
are what drive my art. I love the visual impact of bright colours, they make my live exciting. To have a big blob of magenta on a palette knife and place it right next to bright oranges delivers instant sunshine.
The amazing variety in human faces fascinates me, how only minimal proportional changes are recognizable and provide a person’s likeness or not. The eyes in particular give so many information, they really are the window of one’s soul. Closely followed the mouth; is it smiling, wanting to kiss or tight and angry? We are all judging.
