"The aim of art is to not represent the object's outward appearance, but their inward significance." - Aristotle. To me, Aristotle's words are the key to my inspiration. I am inspired by simple everyday objects not only for their beautiful shapes, colours, and textures but mostly for their ability to trigger special meaning for us. Candy, for example, often stirs up strong childhood memories. I love creating playful and nostaligic compositions that make people reminisce and smile. I am also inspired by patterns and how each and every pattern evoke different emotions. I am intrigued how patterns take my eyes on a journey. I enjoy spending hours designing my own patterns. In combining my two passions of objects and patterns, I strive to create unique, bold, and fun paintings. Reminisce with me as you browse the galleries!
