Being creative has always been at the forefront of everything I've done. I worked as a graphic designer for 10 years in various professional roles. I started painting in my spare time and found the process of committing my thoughts and ideas to canvas gave me a feeling of fulfilment. Stylistically, I've always been drawn to colourful images and bold typography. I always aim to let my paintings establish their own direction, allowing the colours and shapes dictate the final outcome of my work. Usually starting with dark backgrounds, I gradually build up layers of colour. I've learnt that inspiration comes from where you least expect it and what it leads to on the canvas my favourite part of the process.
