Extraordinary Insights: "Don't let others dictate what you should be doing. If you're doing what you shouldn't be doing it's not worth it, it's miserable. Do what you want."

I am an observer, a dreamer, an idealist and an artist who loves as I live with passion and without fear. After years of working in the travel industry, I elected to follow my passion and I began to express my surroundings artistically. I continue to be inspired daily by the world around me; the gentlest of winds, the faint smell of an awaking summer day and the awesome beauty I am honoured to co-exist alongside. I work primarily with acrylic paints on gallery style canvas, but I continue to experiment trying to work towards the next level of discovery. In doing so I am beginning to explore with new mediums and forms of expression such as watercolours, oils and inks.

I started painting about 11 years, but seriously since 2010.
