Artist statement

Art is everywhere in my life, and I see potential in common bits and pieces of everyday life. My inspiration comes from my environment, travel and a compelling story or a line of poetry.

I create colourful layered landscapes, textured florals and abstract narratives using a variety mediums. These artworks may include collaged handmade papers and mysterious found objects. My objective is to convey the human condition in all its beauty and imperfection, elevating the ordinary into something notable that engages the viewer.

I have always wanted to share my passion for art and I hope to bring a smile to the lips, and even better, to stir some emotion deep within and make the viewer wonder.
