Me, understanding myself as an artist.


I try to inject, to express as best I can, what it is that I wish to communicate through my paintings, sometimes, I get lost but I do try to keep things as clear as I can. I usually start by figuring out what I want to say and then I work out the composition, lines, tonal values, colours and texture. I struggle to come up with the communication, sometimes, it’s not the clearest of messages, but when I’m at my best, the painting speaks clearly.

I centre my focus around women, their lives, issues and conditions, trying to be consequential with myself and my thoughts. I may come off as rigid in how I think when it comes how and what I paint, but I think it’s vital to not be all over the place, at least in regards to my approach to my art.

When I decide on a communication I wish to express through painting, I will do all I must in order to understand all I can about it, keeping what works and leaving behind what doesn’t lend itself to the strengthening of the message. Of course, I do not work in a vacuum and so am influenced from many sources, including my own point of view, my gaze.

I feel success when I see understanding of my paintings in the viewer, when one of my paintings touches someone, when my art garners reactions, both positive and negative. I paint because I wish to engage you, and your reactions, your understanding, all of your responses to any given piece I create, is desired and needed, my art is nothing if it is only one sided.
