How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

My paintings are intuitive and expressive. I strive to capture energy and light, and I confess to being a bit of a colour fiend. I paint predominantly with palette knives, and tend to use quick, often relatively random movements so that the end result is more than a static capture, but something that hopefully the viewer will return to and still find something new and interesting after many views.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

I love to paint. It’s a cathartic process for me, and it’s good for the soul. When people engage with something I’ve produced it’s truly uplifting. If I didn’t sell, I would still paint, but the fact that people choose to put my art in their homes makes me just want to keep pushing to be the best I can be.

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

I am a landscape/seascape/cloudscape artist, painting in oils.
