Professional

If you could describe your artwork in three words, what would they be?

Layered, expressive, uplifting.


What was the inspiration behind your work?

Painting helps me understand things better, it helps me understand myself better. That's why I keep doing it and also why it's constantly evolving. 


What is a common misconception about your job?

That being an artist is just painting.


Do you have a favourite piece of work?

Yes, and it's stocked by you! 'End Of Winter' is possibly my favourite piece to date.


What's the most fun part of your job?

Having creative control over what I do, and having the space and time to do it.


Finish this sentence; My work is unique because...

It's an inquiry into my thoughts and emotions at that time. That in itself is not entirely unique, but the response that comes from that inquiry feels incredibly intimate and unique to me, it holds my mark, and the answer.
