Art for me,is a medium of expression beyond words.

Music and Art ,for me, go hand in hand and I am unable to create one without the other, although often music fades, unheard into the background.

I enjoy observing people and the way they interact and respond to their environment; I then love the challenge of re-interpreting an image using various media (pen, pencil, oils, acrylics, printing etc...) to exhibit multiple sentiments that I may have captured in my journey.

I am interested in many subject areas and love to capture ‘special moments’ and diversity in society that retell, retrieve or re-live a story or trigger an emotion/response for an individual.

I couldn’t begin to mention who has influenced me the most because there are so many great artists that have inspired me throughout the years (ranging from the masters to contemporary artists/designers) that I am constantly ‘dipping into and out’ of past decades and present talent for inspiration.

However, I couldn’t agree more with the words of one of my favourites:

‘El Arte sacude del alma el polvo acumulado en la vida diaria’

(Translation: ‘Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life’) - PICASSO.
