  • Artist’s Statement

    I have always loved to draw and paint as a child, animals, birds and people and they are still my favourite subject matter. To find that essence, that divine spark that is within us all is my constant aim and to honour the subject, to delight and maybe challenge the viewer and to glorify the One who is the source of all wonder. I love creating artwork that expresses the love I feel deep in my soul  and that has meaning.
