A Visual Exploration of Ideas
I started painting in 2002. Trained as an architect, I had done a lot of drawing, but it was only when I started painting with my young daughters that I became a painter. I started with flowers in watercolours and acrylics. After awhile, I started painting farmers markets and residential scenes on site. Currently, I am working with varying scenes and lighting conditions that transform ordinary scenes into something remarkable.
