As artists, we understand the temptation to keep adding brushstrokes, refining details and striving to create our BEST WORK YET. But sometimes less really is MORE. Some of my favourite pieces are the ones where I’ve worked quickly and freely, completing in just one session. I don’t assign monetary value to a work based on […]

I’ve come to appreciate the deep satisfaction that comes from the act of creation. In a world consumed by consumerism and the importance of material possessions, the process of making something with your own hands holds far greater value than simply acquiring things.

There’s a deep sense of fulfilment that accompanies the act of creation. The […]

The latest creation in a long line of clothing designs. Residing in the depths of my sketch book for some time, the design finally found the light of day. Now it’s my new fave.

Keeping myself open to new experiences, new environments, new people and interacting with new objects brings with it a steady stream of new thoughts, new feelings and new ideas. It is these experiences which inform my art practice and help shape my creative output.
