Artist Statement

Thoughtful artwork allows us pause in our daily lives; for reflection, and for imagination to take hold. It might be something to sit back and enjoy, or perhaps just a glance of colour that uplifts the spirit. By caring about the walls I paint, I like to think that this will be felt, in turn, by those that pass through these spaces.
