Every child is born to be an artist, and like most children I had passion for painting. But when I was diagnosed with a rare muscle disease in 1995 at the age of 6, that passion became a best friend. Spending time in and out hospital and being to unwell to play with the other kids, drawing and painting became my entertainment.

 

About the artist

"Every child is born to be an artist, and like most children I had passion for painting. But when I was diagnosed with a rare muscle disease in 1995 at the age of 6, that passion became a best friend. Spending time in and out hospital and being to unwell to play with the other kids, drawing and painting became my entertainment.

Since then I have displayed and sold work through Martins gallery, Graydon Gallery, local coffee shops, and annual local art shows. In 2012, I won the people’s choices ward through the Wesley Mission AFTM exhibition. And also won a Special Artistic Merit Award through the Everylife Art contest USA in 2012 and 2014.

As I develop I’m continually changing subjects and technique along the way.

Painting to me is my world and passion. It’s like reading a great book, escaping into a world with no limitation."
