I am a self taught artist, largely with no formal art education. For as long as I can remember, I have always loved to draw, paint or do anything creative! I showed inclination towards arts at a pretty young age, but it was put on a back burner for various reasons. Following this, I took up a job in the different areas and industries, only painting as a hobby in my spare time. A few more years down the line and I am now a mum of 2 adult young ladies, living in London. Wanting a more flexible job, and having a desire to do something that comes naturally to me, I decided to become a full-time artist. I get inspiration from absolutely anything and everything, whether it be something I see, or even emotions. My styles and techniques are still constantly changing and I find that each painting provides me with even more ideas for the next. I am convinced that the thirst of beauty lies deep in human nature, and artists can make this world a bit better by bringing some piece of light, colour and art to our everyday life. I paint landscapes and life forms that promise better times and places. I am not arty, deep, mysterious, messed up, young, ‘emerging’ or remotely likely to get famous – I just like painting. Each picture should have an underlying message. This could be the flow of light, colour, tone or shape. It could even be the distillation of the air between objects. The best feeling is when a painting suddenly comes to life, and you see different colour combinations, textures, your eyes keep getting drawn back to it, all the decisions you took along the way seem irrelevant because the painting just seems as if it couldn't have been any other way. And you think: I might just leave that one on the wall.
