Whether it's a portrait, still life or landscape my work expresses a playful youthful artistry that emits a dreamlike quality. I explore the use of various media in unison and independently to delve into the fragments of people's lives. What lies beneath the surface of each individual? Where are you from? What is their story? I want the viewer to engage and look below the surface to discover a surprise or emotion that they did not see at first glance. Layers of different colours help to reveal the mystery of the narrative.
