A relative newcomer to painting – I first picked up a brush in 2013, with no previous training. Painting is the platform that enables me to be who I want to be; it gives my inner voice a chance to be heard. It means the world to me, as intrinsic as breathing. I paint all subjects, in watercolur, oil and occasional pastel – it’s the sheer beauty in everyday life that can be a hair’s breadth away from ugly. For me it’s all about heart, soul and guts.
