In my paintings, it is about design. It is what shapes and forms and creates the painting's identity. Sometimes that design can be divided into two parts. The
resulting images can be complementary or contrasting. I like the tension that it can create, an order vs chaos-like division, but one that is always balanced and whole. I like trying to achieve
that balance and wholeness.
I also use text, as I feel words can say as much as a line or shape. My collages and mixed media works also reflect my inclination towards design. Well composed,
often textural, together with an innate colour sense, I again try for a balanced and natural calm. I like the tactile feel of air dried clay, as I form and carve out each work, trying to evoke
its own organic nature.
My works are an expression of how I want to perceive and see life, balanced and whole.
