I am constantly on the go! I love walking through the buzzing souks and smelling the aromas in the stale air. I love listening to the sounds unheard of in a place completely alien to me. I love the diversity of cultures, beliefs and traditions which has created this wonderful world we live in. Most of all, I love the fact that I have all these memories to keep" *To Canvas* "In my studio, I am creating a free flow of ideas, thoughts and emotions, narrated in an abstraction in which colours and shapes randomly collide. My canvas is like a toy to me, extremely personal yet universally relevant to the human journey. I dabble in modern abstract images which are often received through inner vision and self-conflict expression. In this journey through expressionism, I have discovered my artistic style and philosophy. I have chosen primarily pure abstract expression as it allows individual viewers to reach inside themselves for their own inner response to the work. This way, I have created an emotional response without even being specific. I am entirely self-taught"
