I make art as a form of release, getting lost in the process, experimenting with brushstrokes and textures. It is a form of therapy.
I work from both life and reference images, I let the painting develop over many layers bringing the subject in and out of focus and concentrate more on mood than representation. For finished pieces I like to make something aesthetic with energy and meaning.
I use a variety of brush strokes , palette knives and often paint using my hands directly on the canvas.
Themes that inspire me are many including the human form, animal world art history, literature, and pop culture.
