Artist statement

"Coming from a Fashion background, my love for people will always feature in my work, whether in the form of nudes or faces. I am susceptible to people’s emotions, their joys and fears, therefore it is natural for me to paint faces with deep emotions, and yes sometimes the raw and gutted. There are times, especially in the times of fear and uncertainty, that I need to paint these deeply emotional paintings. And then there are times that I paint for the pure joy of it. Either way, my art comes from the heart, a passion that drives me and is expressed on canvas. I believe a true artist paints with his/her whole being, not merely to have a picture on a canvas. “The soul of an artist cannot be muted indefinitely. It must either be expressed or it will consume the host.” - Gerard de Marigny "
