Art with a wink
"I want to show the world what kind of beauty you can create when you bring everything together, by mixing colours, influences of people, animals, cultures, beliefs and forms, you get a unique artistic eye-catcher! I will definitely release a certain feeling from the viewer, so I associate my art with: Art with a wink!"

"I had the opportunity to see and discover a lot of the world at an early age, because of these experiences I have gained a lot of inspiration and I saw how beautiful the world can be.
For me, painting is an expression of the soul and my emotion, as it were a diary in colour."
Born 17-11-1990 in Belfast, Northern Ireland
I enjoy experimenting and developing my style through the medium of the natural world. My work is inspired by my love of dramatic beauty. My style is bold both in the use of colour and handling of paint. I love exploring the effects of texture, colour and light on my subject. Seeking atmosphere, I work in varying degrees of abstraction. My process involves applying layers of colour and texture to create a fearless statement, 'celebrating' nature with a 'celebration' of colour. I love the frenzy and excitement that comes from a large, mixed palette of colour, finding tonal harmonies amongst the chaos."

The Mazowe River flows north until it reaches the mighty Zambezi river. The river is a popular site for gold panners and crocodiles. The Mazowe bowl captures the movement of the river and of the crocodiles that swim through it.
Mount Inyangani otherwise known as ‘the mountain of witch doctors’ is the highest mist-enshrouded mountain of the Eastern Highlands. The mysterious disappearances on the mountain is a reality. Locals do not climb the mountain, it is sacred. If you climb it, you are under strict instruction not to laugh or smile out of reverence to the ancestors. The Inyangani bowl with its almost mountainous sides represents the landscape.
In the north-eastern part of the country lies a range of remote hills. The Bumi hills boasts one of Africa's finest wilderness locations and as you climb the hills you are rewarded with a panoramic view of the vastness of Lake Kariba stretching into the Zambezi escarpment.
