Colour inspires me to paint. There’s something magical about how pigments of different colours interact to produce the most luscious, and sometimes unexpected, hues. I think that’s why I’m primarily drawn to florals since there are so many variations of shades, tints and tones that can be mixed to describe the many varieties of flowers. I continue to be amazed at the range of emotions that art can evoke and I love that moment of joy when I present a new painting to someone. It definitely motivates me to keep creating art so that I can capture those moments again and again.
