I create art because...

My art gives me an outlet to express my creativity.

I am different to most artists because...

My art utilises unusual colour combinations and many stories associated with my art are from my own life experiences.

When you look at my art, the thing I want you to feel is...

The care and attention to detail that I have put into a work.

The thing I most want to say to non-artists is...

I love my art, and I cannot believe how lucky I am to realise my ability to create.

I believe art is an important part of our lives because...

Like music is to our ears, art stimulates the visual senses.
