Artist Statement

My paintings are about Power, Strength and Beauty. I love to take classic, iconic photographs and put my own unique and expressive spin on the visuals. To me, this represents the cultural influence and legacy of these characters.

The crafting of these paintings is a fascinating process; of solving the problem of turning a concept into a rational, systematic and delicately balanced artwork. Over time I have learnt how to tenderly manipulate different materials to perfectly express my vision, and to mindfully pour all my emotions into each stroke, blend and wash.
