I have always loved art and beauty having always looked for and appreciating beautiful things, places, views, objects, people, ideas. This led me to wanting and needing to paint them. Fascination with colours and brush strokes is the unending source of creativity for me in the quest of expressing something inexpressible, conjuring up magic, be enticed by illusion. Capturing a moment in time I have been awed, mesmerised, fascinated into silence - a moment of creation beyond words. Sharing that private moment captured, that special something, that beauty perceived and cultivated is what my art practice is about. I get lost in beauty and emerge with a painting longing to be lost again and again. Beauty is there to be shared with others.
