My paintings are an investigation of visual vocabularies; a playful exploration of form, colour combinations, and patterns that represent a private, abstract language. I do not attempt to decode the symbols, only to find what resonates within me. I love translating digital motifs physically, meticulously reproducing forms by hand, embracing anomalies as imperfect ‘perfection’.

The large canvas allows me to express freedom and exuberance, yet my marks and gestures attempt to attain a balance between discipline and play, spontaneity and control.

The canvas mirrors and exaggerates my wonder and joy in the power of paint and invites viewers to share in a visceral experience of it. But the paintings must also remain autonomous. They have their own life and personality.
