Reflections on the origins of my passion in life.

It all really began circa 2001 at the local community college when most of my technique was to do with being studious in line and shape. Since then I have continued to fully nurture my creative side and am very inquisitive about life, living close to the nature of the moment is my choice in life.

As I transfer the feelings I have onto canvas I gain peace in the portrayal of nature. Philosophically speaking I enjoy making authentic art. Taking inspiration and turning it into visual presentation, I look to the here and now for meaning, finding new avenues everywhere to expand into and express that rich variety of the world that adds depth and colour to life.

When painting, the media I use are either Oils, Soft Pastel, or Watercolours. I also choose to test the limits of my abilities with drawing as I’m a lifelong explorer in the school of life. The sizes of support I generally use are: A2 - 42.0cm x 59.4cm, A3 - 29.7cm x 42.0cm, A4 - 21.0cm x 29.7cm, A5 - 14.8cm x 21.0cm.

Being one of the oldest known activities in the world, drawing and painting is a deeply personal aspect of self-expression. I often wonder what the lure of the old masters is for me, and ponder on what prompted them to paint the way they did. As I begin to open my mind to greater possibilities that live normally out of reach but within the realm of imagination, this furnishes me with an entire lifetime's worth of musings.

My direct aim is to develop my artwork and let my passion and creativity become my voice, by reflecting the nature between the observed object and suggested meaning. Hence I explore the connections within the view, from methods determined by the relationship of elements in the subject.

Many human beings strive to be a part of and at one with life, my art being my way, and is a real pleasure to share. May you gain joy and satisfaction with the world as I do, express yourself.....always!
