Art takes many forms®...It inspires, decorates, comforts and communicates... but most importantly, art indulges our senses and enriches our soul.
From a rewarding career in fine art encompassing international awards and works in public collections, to the corporate world of retail advertising, and recently, academia, my passion for creative and intellectual inquiry has been channeled on many levels. I hold a Master of Art degree in art history, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting, drawing and printmaking. In 2014, I published my first book on architecture "Seduced by Form: Aesthetics of Spectacle in Contemporary Art Museum Architecture" available online world wide in digital and printed formats.
In fine art, my language of visualization draws on the legacy of Surrealism, where fantasy and pastiche play an integral part. Whether in paintings, drawings or lithographs, the techniques applied privilege the narrative of the line; a style of calculated precision that aims at conveying a story.
In digital media and photography, I seek a deeper sense of mystery within the omnipresent wealth of nature’s diversity. The unexpected and the playful are hidden to be revealed by the viewer, and through the aesthetically re-purposed vintage objects, architectural elements and nature.
In the spirit of my internationally registered business Trademark: Art takes many forms® my often small in size works acquire a unique relationship with their viewers, revealing themselves more intimately at closer inspection.
