I have always loved sketching and drawing. My work is created intuitively and I consider myself largely self-taught. My family has an extensive heritage of creating great art and I am proud to continue this tradition.

My drawings are quite spontaneous and the detail and structure emerge over the hours I work on them. I let my imagination and subconscious lead me and am often surprised by where I end up.

I find the process of working on my drawings soothing and therapeutic, focusing intensely on intricate patterns and repeated shapes with a recurring emphasis on circles. I enlarge my original hand drawn black and white drawings which allows the viewer to see much more detail and creates impact. It also enables me to hand embellish each print in colour—a process that transforms and further enhances the image

I enjoy hearing other people’s diverse insights and interpretations of my work hoping they too find a sense of calm and completion in the drawing which echo my own feelings as their creator.
