Art is an extension of myself through which I have been able to channel my emotions and life experience to grow as a person.
My two main styles of work are Wildlife and Symbolic Realism.
Each painting is seen as a tool to communicate an emotion. I would like to give each animal life through my painting, evoking a powerful emotion.
My aim is to communicate our close bond with animals, from the beginning of time we've co-existed on this plant, and we must express a mutual respect towards fellow creatures by conserving this planet and its inhabitants.
The purpose of my art is to convey a message, evoke a feeling, an awareness of the uniqueness not only of a species but of every individual animal whether it be a leopard, a lion or a zebra. I hope that looking at my art, a deeper serious urge will descend in each individuals consciousness a need to protect, to conserve each animal and by doing so be consequently enriched.
These paintings are a personal affair a private journey of finding and building a self and a life.
Through these paintings I wish to:
Share hope with others.
You are not alone in your situation
You can break free!
You are part of the universe.
There is a place for you other than the one you are in.
It has a name.
It is abuse!
