My artworks incorporate mostly of self-portraits of people. Inspired by my battle with mental illness, depression, my aim is to achieve drama as in means of conveying emotions, strong feelings, creating moods and bringing one’s spirit to life. I create artworks that go beyond that is visible, and to deconstruct into parts – where marks, colours and abstraction begin to overtake the centrality. My work appropriates from 20th century masters such as Gauguin and Vincent van Gogh to modern-day expressive painters such as Lionel Smith and Andrew Salgado.
