I have always loved painting themes which invite you, my viewer, to walk into my canvas and explore it’s mysterious interiors and depths.
Perspective, a feeling of space and depth are what set my paintings apart.
There are mysterious nooks and corners to be explored in old ancestral homes, temples, palaces and forts, there are foliage–lined pathways or steps leading into the unknown, there are rows of welcoming deck chairs on the beach, there are distant horizons as you stand at the water’s edge gazing at it’s different hues, there are deep forests offering shade or rooftops disappearing into the distance.
I paint mainly with the palette knife to achieve different textures on the canvas using several layers of paint.
Light and shadow play an important part in my canvases—I use the play of light to heighten the feeling of perspective and breathe life into my paintings.
I like to use colours that are bright and happy—the moods I create are positive and upbeat.
There are suggestions of joyous occasions , celebrations or just positivity in my works—reds, oranges and yellows in my sun paintings, children darting between pillars, welcoming doorways, colourful inviting deck chairs, hidden toys playing hide and seek.
There is a sense of tranquillity which “effortlessly strokes the soul”.
Come, step into my paintings and enter a make-believe happy world.
