For a number of years, I have had a burning desire to paint. I first turned to art in 2014 as an escape from living as a cancer carer. I knew I just needed colour in my life, and lots of it. As an artist I practice self directed learning by taking various courses in all sorts of mediums and by carrying out vast amounts of experiments with acrylics, waxes, oils, and inks in my studio at home. It has now become a total passion for me and a new way of life.
