“I am blessed to live in God’s Kingdom and experience the marvels of nature, and the simple creativity of His people. Nature is filled with visual surprises and is constantly inspiring me to interpret the marvellous beauty onto the canvas, pulling me toward new colours and tones. Painting for me is a gift to explore and I am not afraid of working in different mediums, although I’m working mainly in oils at present.”
