Artist Statement

Rarity in ornamentation appeals to me. Anything and everything around me inspires me. What then translates onto the canvas is a mix of reality and a touch of fantasy.

The fact that I am self-taught, I believe, has contributed significantly to my style of work. There is no muse, no boundaries, no rules. There can be shadow without light; there can be light without shadow.

Freedom of expression is the key to my work and not being guided by reasoned deliberation which, in my mind, will strangle any imagination and creativity of one's soul.

My work, my first love is driven by my fascination with the anatomy of the human body and to challenge myself to paint my emotion through it. I cannot express myself, my emotion, my state of mind any better than through the most powerful language we know - the body.
