How would you describe your style?
Being a self-taught artist, I do not paint in a traditional watercolour style. Instead, I adopt techniques that emphasise vibrancy in an effort to bring my work to life. I use bold colours and offset them with intentional splashes and drips of watercolour to add texture.
How long have you been a practicing artist?
I have always been creative in one way or another. I studied law and then event management but there always seemed to be a creative project in the background – art was an escape from the nagging question: What should I do with my life? It took a while to realise it was also the answer.
Do you have any favourite materials?
I paint predominantly in watercolour as I love how the effect can be so unpredictable. No two pieces will ever look the same and its translucent nature means you can achieve such a range of colour and depth.
How do you hope to affect people with your art?
I want to give people a deeper appreciation for nature and the motivation to save it. The destruction of the natural world affects every aspect of our lives and will increasingly do so. I just hope I can create pieces for people’s homes that act as reminders of what is worth protecting out there.
