Artist Statement – Painting


Artist Statement

Our world fascinates me. Whether it is an animal, a person or a scene, the endless forms, colours, interactions and quirkiness are a bottomless source of inspiration. It is important for me to make a connection through the eyes of my subject, to simply relate to a scene in which you can transpose yourself or to anthropomorphise interactions of the animal world to help us empathise with them.

I want to depict the fragility of our environment and of our society through snippets of beauty in order to convey the importance of protecting and preserving what we have and what we are.

The spontaneity of acrylics allow me to quickly dive into my subject while allowing me to use vibrant, richly saturated colours that enhance how I see the world and let me share that vision.
