Welcome to my world of painting.
I paint fleeting glimpses of everyday life. Those quiet spaces sandwiched between life's more memorable moments. The ones that are often overlooked because they’re not big enough to register as something special. Not important enough to file away as a memory.
But even in life’s simple and unremarkable moments, you can find emotion and movement. A passing ray of light. The wrinkle in a smile or a disappointed arched eyebrow. A lively conversation or a distracted bystander. There’s even beauty in abandoned objects neatly arranged on a bedside table.
