My purpose it to shine a light into the community through art. Light has always fascinated me. It has so many meanings and significance in life. It brings clarity, hope and unveils our path. The moment between night and day as light fills the sky with colour, this Kairos moment, brings me deep joy. With art as the vehicle, I tell the story of light whether the hope of a sunrise or the light falling on a child’s face to reveal their innocence or the path of light as it falls across a table to expose the velvet petal of a flower. I aim to share the light of God that lives in me and is revealed in creation into the lives of others to bring just a little more joy into their hearts.
The way the pastel becomes your brush and the paper your pallet is immediate and exciting to paint with. The subtle colour effects you can gain by glazing one colour over another gives a great depth to the artwork. Combining water colour and pastel in the ocean is a marriage made in heaven. They compliment each other and give a clarity to my artwork. I also work in oils and enjoy the texture created by the brush.
