As an artist I am drawn towards portrait painting. I walk down the street and I see people and their faces in paint. What I find interesting is that in us which is tender, the moments in life where we are open, where the walls have fallen down and we are met with our own vulnerability.
The illustration work is all about having fun. Playing with motif and colours. Being weird and wonderful. For most illustartions I prefer watercolour and ink, I enjoy the wildness of the paint, and the sharpness of the ink.
