In my younger years I dabbled in various forms of art. Music. Dance. Theatre. Drawing. Painting. Sculpting. Writing. Photography. As a teenager I expected to become a professional artist. However, life got in the way and I ended up putting art on the back burner for many, many years.

Fast forward to 2019 when I started feeling the old midlife crisis creeping in. I felt lost and didn’t know what to do about it. I remembered how much I used to love to create and thought that maybe getting back into art might appease my unease. But I wasn’t sure where to start. So I went to a local bookstore and picked up an art book that encouraged exploration of various art mediums with prompts. I was working through the pages with indifference until I came across the watercolour exercises.


The way watercolour moves across the page just fascinates me. I started researching watercolour online and I watched hours of online watercolour videos and tutorials. Even as I watch it develop, the final art piece always surprises me. Even when I’m the one painting!

Through my online searches I learned about urban sketching and portrait painting. Painting portraits has always intimidated me. But they’ve also always been the subject that has interested me the most. So lately I’ve been concentrating a bit more on developing my portrait painting and sketching skills.

No matter the subject, nothing gets me out of my own head like sketching and painting does.

I hope you enjoy looking through my artwork as much as I’ve enjoyed creating it.
