Art is like happiness. It’s not complete until you share it.
“I’ve always felt the need to share my art. I paint not only for self gratification, but also to share in the hope that others will feel the same emotions. I don’t merely want you to see what I saw;
my goal is that my paintings will transcend your senses; and you’ll feel as though you could walk into the painting; feel the sunlight on your face, hear the sounds of nature, and perhaps walk a bit deeper into the forest. By recreating the scene realistically, paying attention to the textures, shapes and colours in the landscape and how the light affects them, I hope that I can achieve this.”
