“Being creative, to me, is not a choice but an obsession. I am inspired by the natural world, including animals, people and places, and gravitate toward depictions of these things. Whether on paper or canvas, using charcoal, graphite, pastel, or paint, I am bewitched with making an idea come to life. I paint and draw in a softly realistic style and endeavour to capture the subtleties, beauty and light of a subject in a moment in time that captivates me. My mission is to be a life-long learner & adventurer, to feed my obsession to create, and to give joy to others through my work.”
