In The Studio 

Beach Scenes 

& Florals

Sea Spray series inspired by nature. These artworks are all about capturing the magic of light, mood and movement. In some of my seascape paintings, I aim to paint the energy and ocean waves crashing against the rocks. In my florals, I strive to portray the subjects in a soft and delicate manner, showcasing the beauty of the flowers through lighter tones.

Unveiling the Soul of Art: Exploring Life's Pace Through My Sketchbook Journal

I allocate time to collect photographs, create small thumbnail sketches, and document any inspirational ideas in my sketchbook journal. This becomes a cherished moment of respite from painting and other commitments. I enjoy using my own reference photographs to draw inspiration from nature. Taking my own photographs is crucial because it is through this creative process that I come to truly comprehend what I am painting.

Maintaining a journal holds great significance to me, considering the fast-paced nature of life. While my preference lies in intuitive painting, I find value in documenting various aspects, as it has the potential to expand my creative horizons. By recording experiences, thoughts, and observations, I leave room for my mind to embark on new explorations and uncover fresh inspirations.
