I am a figurative painter as the human form holds a strong importance for me. I am interested in the process of creating a tangible form of a human presence/being through paint application. Colour and tone are in high concern regarding my painting process. I wish to flaunt the tactile qualities and the materiality of oil paint. I often use my painting as a vehicle to explore ideas surrounding the world of professional fighting and the psyche and personalities of such fighters.
