Art to me, is a voice that communicates truth, values, and beauty. It is a powerful language that is capable of bringing hope and healing. I try to communicate all these through colours, symbols and textures. I enjoy working with traditional media, usually coloured pencils or inks on papers, acrylic paints on canvas, and sometimes mixed media.
Agreeing with what G.K. Chesterton says, “The dignity of the artist lies in his duty of keeping awake the sense of wonder in the world,” I strive to create beautiful original art pieces that draws out the sense of wonder and curiosity in the viewer.
I enjoy reading, journaling, travelling and learning about different people groups and cultures. All these really inspire me in my work.
My ideal day would be spending time with a good friend at a sidewalk cafe, sharing our hearts and minds, reading a good book, sipping a cup of steaming hot coffee, doodling on napkins and taking in the little happenings around us.
