Artist Statement -

Art is a universal concept and there are as many opinions about what "Art" is as there are people in the world. I have always admired children’s artwork; as it is imaginative, uninhibited and full of joyful colours.

Exuberantly and cheerfully is the way I like to live and the way I like to paint. I am inspired by the simple things in life and captivated by the love, beauty and colours surrounding us. I love to create cheerful, bright, stylized paintings adding a little colour and happiness into our lives. My art is a celebration of life, colour and form.

I want my paintings to bring out the child within; the part that is free to dream and forget about our everyday stresses.

I work from my imagination, infusing my own playful personality into my work. I work mainly with acrylics which I love for their vivid colours and versatility. I love to paint with bright colours and experiment with juxtapose combinations of colors, shapes and ideas. My subject matter covers a varied range of subjects, all indicative of the many places and aspects of life I find intriguing: Flowers with their beautiful colours and organic shapes; Memories from our travels across Europe and deep in my heart is always the beautiful Italian Riviera, colourful Tuscany, vibrant city-landscapes, the majestic sea with its boats and harbours, which are full of imagery and romance and of course the lively cats that I met along the way.

When I paint, I relive the magic, colours, and wonders of my travels and my paintings are always an expression of me and how I see our beautiful world!

I know I have achieved my goal, when my painting makes you smile!
