I am a self-taught artist based on life experiences and practical working. Shortly after beginning my studies in art, I became interested in mosaic and decided to go to several countries - looking to soak up different cultures and techniques including notably a significant period of time in Barcelona, home to Gaudi and other modern mosaic artists, where I acquired much of my technique and spirit as an artist.
Art is believing and throwing you into the experience like a child playing. Even though I take my artistic work very seriously, I still have a lot of fun while I’m creating.
For me, the mosaic is a way to create an engaging visual environment through the line, colour and form and also use it as an opportunity to develop my own unique artistic voice. It would not be unreasonable to suggest that any meaning or concept comes second, the quality of the actually work is what is paramount.
My artworks are often about contact with architecture and basic living elements and directly responds to the surrounding environment and uses everyday experiences.
