About the event

Being an artist is my life, and in no way could I imagine being, or doing, anything else.

I experience both beautiful and sad things through everyday life and these experiences generate  a strong need to paint. Using colour through this wonderful medium, I express what I see and  feel, and in turn I learn and discover new ways in which to express what I feel and the ideas that  enter my mind.  When I start a painting, I focus on an idea or experience I once encountered, and let my feelings  take control. At times the reaction I get is that the painting starts to take on a completely new  direction to the initial one I had in mind. It takes on its own character as it were, however I am  its creator and to this extent I have complete control over the end result. Because I detect this  ‘character’, I’m able to detect the new direction that the painting is taking and stay in complete  control of its final outcome. I feel this is important to an artist. I can honestly say that when I  paint a painting based on a sad feeling, I can always look at it and find it very beautiful and  rewarding.  I’m content in the realisation that everyone that sees one of my works, do so through different  interpretations, thus giving it a new ‘feeling’ to the original that I intended. I love the sense of  knowing that my work takes on different interpretations and appearances when hung in  unknown homes and offices. It becomes more a child born to me.  The sources that inspire me are usually found all around us – nature being the main one. During  my development, I have been able to focus on nature and the incredible sensation I get from  being able to transfer the feelings I encounter and the inspiration that which drives me to  transfer these feelings onto virgin paper. Because at times these inspirations come to me when  I’m unable to paint, I have developed a sense whereby I ‘store’ these ideas and at times I find  that when I do this I have the ability to expand on the initial idea and I feel that this sometimes  take on the form of the ‘new direction’ within my painting that I sometimes encounter.
