Art is an integral part of my life. When working on a piece, I am completely engaged in the process. In order to keep my subject matter fresh and exciting, I frequently get the urge to experiment with different mediums and techniques, changing my themes depending on the time of year, location or inclination. A common thread of my work might include reflections, particularly water reflections and the interplay of light and shadow. I am drawn by certain colours or colour combination particularly in abstracts, and along with the drama, I try to have at least one quiet area in my painting. I am always open to new possibilities, adding fresh layers to my artistic journey. I hope you enjoy my work.
