-About my art

My art is about experiencing life with wonder and joy.  It is about finding poetry and magic in places that I visit and in objects which I own or happen to come across.

I particularly love painting seascapes. I aim to capture the emotions and memories that I would want to re-live when the everyday life becomes mundane or stressful, fleeting moments which touch me with their beauty, the views that make me stop and look with awe, and objects that inspire me, awaken memories or make me dream.

I usually paint in oils, using the alla prima, wet-on-wet technique. My paintings are colourful and rich in texture. For me, the tactile nature of oil paints makes the creative process very enjoyable and playful. At the same time, though, it is an extremely focused and almost meditative experience. Painting process allows me to explore my subject; to be for a while with the feeling which was the initial reason for my desire to hold onto it and to choose it for my painting.

I hope the viewers will respond to my art emotionally and that they perceive a little bit of the same poetry which moved me to create.
