& & Artists&Statement&

I feel that I need to paint. That its a part of my self-expression. Im inspired to convey positive feelings of joy, peace and tranquility. I find the process of breathing life into a painting truly fascinating. I love working with pastels because I can actually touch and feel my paintings. I also like to working with coloured pencils, graphite and watercolour. Along with landscapes and floras, I really enjoy doing portraits. A successful painting is one where I can feel life in it. For a landscape, I can imagine myself moving around in the painting; feeling the sun and the air. For a portrait, I can sense their personality and spirit looking back at me. Starting with a good composition I think that values, shapes, lines, colours and textures all play an important role in a successful painting. Im also very conscious of light and shadow. The most influential artist for me was Zolton Szabo. I attended a workshop of his in the summer of 2001, and came away with a whole new awareness of colour, values and other important fundamentals of a good painting. My goal is to keep challenging myself to successfully capture life and emotion in my art.
