ASA: Can you tell us about your influences?

I would say that there are many things that influence my work. For me, creating is a form of expression which incorporates what I see, hear, personal experiences, past and present.Travel also lends itself to a broad spectrum of new influences. Artists past and present are also influences.

ASA: Which body of work would you consider your most successful to date?

There is always excitement when creating a new body of work. Right now I am working on a series of figurative paintings that I feel are successful. They are both representational and abstract. Working with acrylic, a variety of materials and tools I am creating mood and emotion through layering, colour and texture.
