"I enjoy experimenting with all medium, but watercolour and acrylic are the ones I find most satisfying. Depending on the subject, I find that it would either lend itself more to the delicate touches of watercolour or to the stronger and more vibrant colours of acrylic paint and each would allow me to translate a 'mood' a subject might evoke.
I have come to realise that it's not 'what you paint' that is important but 'how you paint it'. So in my interpretation of painting a subject, I try to maintain the essence of what first inspired me to paint it. For me, what is fundamental in my paintings are light, subtlety of colour, harmony, depth and drama, while still staying true to the subject. In my finished work I hope that I have conveyed to the viewer a sense of mood, which was present at the time of painting.
