“My biggest compliment is to stop passers-by who had only by accident caught a glimpse of the picture. What they see should be breathtakingly different, delightfully fresh, something emotionally appetizing and a joy.”
I am interested in exploring the world around me through my emotions. I approach the painting surface in an entirely intuitive way. I mix the oil paint in a palette of how I feel the image and then begin the process of painting using knives, brushes and my hands. The process becomes an very physical, tactile one. I apply layer over layer letting the colours of the under layers mix visually with the ones on top. The process is quick and spontaneous just as emotions are so I can keep it fresh and alive.
