I've been painting seriously for the past 5 years though, I've been painting all my life. I've exhibited my paintings at many group shows in Victoria and I am preparing for my solo exhibition scheduled for early 2009 . I'm currently represented by Topez Gallery in Tyabb and 36 Jackson Gallery in Toorak, both in the Victoria state of Australia. Commission work available. I paint with acrylic most of the time because of its versatility and drying speed (I'm not the most patient person in the world!). Sometimes I do paint in oil or watercolours depending on my mood. Other mediums that I also work in includes pastels, graphite, and colour pencils. I grew up in an artistic environment where there are professional artists (painters, sculptors & musicians) stemming from both my paternal and maternal side of the families. I would categorise my style as figurative/expressive abstractionism. It is my preference that I do not influence the interpretations of the audience by explaining my work too much. My ultimate goal is to create a piece of work that can hold its own dialogue with the viewer be it a positive or a negative one. To acheive that, my creative journey would be very fulfilling and worthwhile !
