Close up of painting I am working on "Namaste (II)" - 2017
I am a painter in acrylic medium but also enjoy using pencil, charcoal, pastel, chalk and decoupage. The subject matters I enjoy painting are still life, folk art and lately I have been moving towards exploring women's figures.
Trying to describe or explain my efforts at painting seems like a pointless exercise. I want the paintings to express themselves without the necessity of words. Usually life events, thought process, surroundings or just by observing will trigger a new series of paintings, anything that challenges my perceptions, but occasionally it will be through exploration of a new subject which sparks an idea that becomes a journey until the subject is exhausted.
My work displays beauty, spirituality and cultural traditions. I seek to emphasize lines, patterns, bold colours to show a dazzling effect of a well refined painting.
I have undertaken a number of commissioned works and welcome new projects.
