Art has always been at the centre of what I do. I found my passion for art at the age of 11 when I started taking acrylic painting lessons in Waterloo with Doreen Snyder.
In my paintings I try to make it look as realistic as possible with a lot of detail. This style has taken aspects from a variety of experiences. Sculpture and painting in high school, stained glass workshops, photography, graphic and fine art at Fanshawe College. I’m always observing my surroundings wondering how I would go about painting an object or landscape, the lines of a building or how light and shadows fall.
My process starts with a colour combination, an interesting every day item or one of the thousands of photographs I have taken stored on my iPad.
I have been a regular artist in the summer with the Art in the Park group in Springbank Park, London. You can also see my artwork on the chalkboard in the cheese/deli department at Remark Market, London. My work can be found on display at For the Love of Art gallery in London.
People have commented that my work feels like it comes from a peaceful environment. In reality I crank up Led Zeppelin on the turntable and sing at the top of my lungs. Now doesn’t that paint a pretty picture!
