Nature inspires me creatively and emotionally to connect with my feelings and inner self.

As a Graphic Designer and Illustrator I enjoy experimenting with new art materials and pushing them to achieving different results. Over Lockdown I pushed myself to try abstraction which, as an illustrator, I found rather difficult. I tried to recreate feelings and emotions.  As a Scuba Diver I’m connected with nature and my Dive Buddies. At home I try to recreate and connect those feelings, colours, joy and emotions into my artwork. Sometimes I succeed, sometimes I don't. Like the sea, my paintings can be challenging and variable but I always try to evoke the spirit of the place.
