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

My work is very colourful ,contemporary, fun, I want each piece to give joy. I often abstract a subject, I like to play, I go into a place of pure creativity. There is of course a part of me that wants a certain outcome, but the main goal is to see what happens, and see what I’m capable of, that s the thrill for me. My work splits into 3 areas, pure Abstract, Semi Abstract and Representational. I have annotated this on my website, in the Gallery section, where incidentally you can see me on You tube at the bottom of the home page, creating a piece called Irises.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

All encompassing, its my passion, its the ultimate form of self expression.
