"I paint using a variety of medium including pastels, oils and watercolour, it is the light that has always fascinated me. It has so many meanings and significance in life. It brings clarity, hope and unveils our path. The moment between night and day as light fills the sky with colour, this Kairos moment, brings me deep joy. With art as the vehicle, I tell the story of light whether it is the hope of a sunrise, the light falling on a child’s face to reveal their innocence or the path of light as it falls on the velvet petal of a flower. I aim to share the light of God that lives in me and is revealed in creation into the lives of others to bring just a little more joy into their hearts.”
