I was born and raised in East Africa and consequently have a passionate affinity with untamed vistas whether desert or sea.
I define spaces through colour. Drawing on my emotional and physical reaction to particular times, places and events, I combine observation and personal feelings to create artworks that are filled with directness, immediacy and vibrant energy.
