For me painting is a visual language that ignites my curiosity and imagination.
I paint for the sheer joy of it!
My approach is both intuitive and experimental. Acrylic paint is the medium of choice as it allows me the freedom to watch as the story unfolds.
Colour is the impetus combined with some unorthodox and playful tools, like an assortment of brushes, scrappers,credit cards ,rakes and rollers.
While nature and the beauty of the world that surrounds ,shows me the possibility of pressing the envelope of artistic creation.
