My paintings are not just representations of people, but windows into their inner lives. Through careful attention to detail and composition, I aim to create portraits that capture the essence of my subjects – their hopes, fears, joys, and struggles. But my work is not simply about documenting individual experiences. Rather, I see portraiture as a means of telling broader stories that speak to the complexity and beauty of the human experience, and that offer a sense of connection and understanding to those who view them.
At the heart of my art is a deep commitment to storytelling. Through my paintings, I hope to weave narratives that speak to and offer insights into the complexities of our shared journey.
Finally, I believe that humour has a crucial role to play in helping us confront the challenges of the human condition. Through the use of wit and irony, I seek to create images that invite laughter and playfulness, even as they explore the deeper truths of our existence.
