Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
I primarily work in oil but watercolour is also an essential part of my practice. In my work I am mainly interested in the subtle surrealism of everyday life. I am usually attracted by animals and creatures that I encounter and I enjoy observing their behavior which eventually finds its way into my work.
