BFA Fine Art


Although life can bring stress, chaos, and confusion, I always try to find a way to be positive, and to be myself. Few life experiences can satisfy me as much as painting. It is a form of creative practice that uses colour and style to express many meanings. I like to use bright colours and high contrast in abstract and representational paintings that combine figures and cityscapes. Oil paint is my favourite medium, and I work in a range of sizes. “Inner Peace” and how it is unlike the utilitarian world we have to survive in is a current theme in my work.
