“I work spontaneously and rarely begin with a set plan in mind. I let each painting evolve intuitively as I build each layer of paint. I work quickly to begin with, which is why I prefer to work with faster drying acrylic paints. Each piece is then finished off with a layer of gloss varnish to enhance the colors and depth and also protect the surface of the painting. Painting for me is second nature, I have been doing it in one way or another since my early teen years, and feels as natural as breathing. My paintings are both a direct reflection of my surroundings and an imaginary world – a secret garden that exists in my mind. A whimsical place that I can go to escape and be lost within. I create a world that I want to be in and that provides an escape from every day.“
