"The aim of art is to not represent the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance." - Aristotle. The spark of my inspiration can perhaps be found in Aristotle's quote. The art of simple everyday objects are not only in their beautiful shape, colour, and texture but also in their essence. Objects have the ability to triggers strong emotions due to its significance which can vary for one person to another. Candy, for example, often stirs up strong childhood memories for me. When creating, I strive to paint compositions that make people smile and reminisce. Another major aspect of my artwork is my obsession with patterns. It is intriguing how each and every pattern evokes different emotions and take the viewer's eyes on a journey. I spend hours designing my own patterns. Striking patterned backgrounds add zest and boldness to my compositions as well as giving them a nostalgic feel. Welcome and browse through each gallery!
