Painting grounds the restlessness in me and it helps me to reflect upon the passage of time, my relationships with people, animals and nature. Working predominantly in acrylics on canvas, I find the immediacy and flexibility of acrylics a joy to work with. Typically for landscapes, I paint from memory and reference personal photos. Vacillating between representation and abstraction, my work strives to capture the essence and vitality of my subject matter.
