I am a self taught painter brought up and educated in the island. I started painting in high school and immediately took to it. I love paint and I love using paint to interpret the world around us. I especially love the challenge of simplifying landscapes, exaggerating elements and choosing bright colours to create a visually interesting painting which is still a recognisable landscape in our world.  My interest in expressionist-style painting has drawn me to the dynamic, vivid and somewhat naive style I work with today.
