” I find myself often drawn to animals and nature in my work – and mostly animals from the sea. I love the idea of the viewer having narratives and stories from their personal history, that are brought to life by my paintings of animals that hold symbolic meanings.
Textures, colourful things, and metallics always catch my eye and this comes through in my work. Colour is a constant, key presence in all of my designs. I embrace colour in all its forms and I’m endlessly fascinated by the feelings and emotions that colour can evoke.
Ultimately, I paint and design with the aim of evoking joy, raising a smile, creating a positive mood.“
