Every day I am inspired by the beauty of colour, light ,shape and composition of nature. I am compelled to express this beauty through my painting .I love to paint and become totally engrossed in the creative process and am forever grateful for God's creativity.
I started painting in 2003 and paint mainly in watercolour because of its unique character. I love the way watercolour paint flows, mixes, runs, blends and dances freely across the paper.
All my paintings are original. I consider myself an impressionistic painter. I do not like to duplicate an image.I like to explore the mood and the painting is an artistic interpretation of the subject.
