Statement

Art comes natural to me it is part of who I am, a gift given from my mother who is a great artist and dress-designer. I love to work in pencil, charcoal, pastel, conte, oil pastel and acrylic paint. My inspiration stems from history and travel, atmospheric scenes, my childhood, the human figure, moments and people that have made a mark in my life. Artists that I gain inspiration from is wide ranging from old greats such as Hopper, Degas and Van Gogh to more modern artists like Egon Schiele, Alex Kanevsky, Daniel Pitin and Kim Cogan. My work is a mixture between drawing and painting using figurative, portraits and landscape / cityscape scenes as subjects. I like to create work that is atmospheric and possesses depth that expresses something that will evoke the viewer to feel, to engage with what they are seeing and to take away a piece of something from my work, be it a thought, an idea, a perspective, a message.
