As an artist, my work is an extension of me. Each painting has its own interesting story to tell and I enjoy disclosing anecdotes of how the work came into being. A painting has its own power. When a striking artwork makes a connection and speaks to the viewer, it invokes a deeply personal relationship.
Everyone reads each piece of art differently. I find it very gratifying to discover how art lovers respond to my work. I love to hear different and engaging interpretations. I get an overwhelming feeling of happiness when I can see this connection occurring on a persons face as they light up.
Art is not about the potential value; what it costs or what it is worth. Art shouldn’t be seen a financial investment or a commodity. A vibrant, bold and skilful painting should bring pleasure and make you think. It should add an extra dimension to any room it is hung in.
Owning a piece of art is about looking at it and enjoying it. This emotional affinity creates a tremendous, heartwarming feeling. Once the purchase is made it becomes part of its owner’s life and integral to their home and their identity.
