My art journey has really only just begun, after a 23 year corporate Marketing career ended in 2011. Regular art classes and workshops influence me and challenge me and I keep exploring and learning.
My inspiration? Seeing beauty all around me with “new eyes” since starting to paint. It’s in the shape and colour of the clouds, so different, each and every day, it’s in the look in my new puppy’s eyes, it’s in a face that I see in a crowd, and it’s in the beauty of what I see on my travels, which I photograph and use as reference material in my studio.
My art style leans towards realism, though, trying too hard to create detail is not my intention. I try rather to capture the essence of what caught my attention initially and inspired me to want to paint it.
