Artistic Statement

I am a very versatile artist. I work in gouache, watercolours, black and line ink, acrylics and use Photoshop as required. Often I mix the mediums with each other to get the results that I look for as per project. I am work on a daily basis and produce at least one artwork, either in my sketchbook or as a finished piece. I am truly inspired by my travels around the world and my personal surrounding and bits and pieces I collect.
