“an essential aspect of creativity is not being afraid to fail”. - Edwin Lund
My work is the place where I have fun. I paint strong yet sensitive women both provocative and quirky. I’m inspired by everything that surrounds me, from nature and emotion to simple fragments of my everyday life.
"Painting and illustrating has always played a significant role - it's my medium of communication and it forces me to observe and absorb everything that is interesting. It keeps me moving forward with a sense of freedom in this omnivorous cultural whirlwind where visual stimuli often engulfs us. Through my work I explore form and I try and evoke emotions of kindness, strength, compassion and passion - these are traits which help define beauty in all women."
