My love for art comes from my childhood. I have fond memories creating with my mum, she would share her knowledge of art history and artistic skills. When I was older we travelled to France together where she taught me about histories master painters like impressionist artists, Renoir, Degas and Van Gogh. I was mesmorised by there use of colour and light. It amazed me how beautifully they could capture a story through movement, colour matching and pattern work. The last five years of my career have been a discovery, from sketching to realism. I enjoy building a piece like a jigsaw puzzle finding the pattern within the tiny detail in the image. Painting lace in the image was just another way to add texture, pattern and delicacy. It became a metaphor for how I wanted to portray my work. Focusing on strength, fragility and intricacy.
