Painting thrills me. The process is completely immersive and full of surprises, with unexpected revelations in colour and texture as a work unfolds. I love to observe the beauty and delicacy of often overlooked objects, visually dissecting and interpreting them on canvas in my own style. As Frédéric Chopin concluded about music, “Simplicity is the final achievement. After one has played a vast quantity of notes and more notes, it is simplicity that emerges as the crowning reward of art.” With my simple depictions, I hope to inspire others to recognise that beauty is all around us.
