Inspiration comes from all around - the weather, the light, colours, shapes, my collection of crystal or silver objects and even my favourite flowering plants, all play a part in how I feel about any given subject.
I am however, continuously drawn to the ocean, in particular during stormy weather when the waves are dynamic and awe-inspiring. I spend hours just looking at their constant movement and form, studying foam patterns and the colour of the light as it shines through each breaker.
My philosophy is simple - keep painting, strive to discover new techniques from each new work and, never stop learning. Most of all, enjoy the process!
