I am a creative and conservation artist, who absolutely enjoys producing colourful artworks to brighten up and help people feel good. Creativity is part of me, which goes hand in hand with a deep respect of and interest in, our natural environment. Every painting is original, different from each other, and designed to suit homes and workplaces.
We are gifted by imagination, and I make great use of this before starting on new projects. I often experiment with shapes and their locations to show imagined motions. And use different tools and materials to create textures, thus giving a tactile touch to the painting surface.
Creating my acrylic paintings involves creating a varied background to support the objects that will become the main theme of the artwork. Then vibrant and contrasting shapes (sometimes made from cut or textured items dipped in paint) are added to the composition. Encaustic wax is often added to enhance the theme and define my art.
On the conservation side, my ongoing Nature’s series of paintings, asks the viewer to be aware, think, and consider the impact of our actions on this world’s environment.
