For me art is a tool for positive social change. They say that a picture paints a thousand words and I believe in the power of art to provide that narrative and positively influence societies to bring about the necessary changes.
I am particularly interested in world heritage and culture. I believe that our surroundings shape us and I am particularly interested in how human behaviour is influenced by the places in which they reside. I also see the buildings that I paint as the soul of our civilisation, as our capacity for creative thought is what defines and unites us as a race.
My brushstrokes, quickly and liberally applied, seek to demonstrate the energy and the urgency of the subject matter. My compositions are bold and I use my warm and classic palette to balance this.
