"I love to create happy art to make you smile and laugh. I never thought I could draw more than a stick man. Then one day in the year 2001 for some reason I decided to close my eyes and attempt to draw a cat. When I opened my eyes, I erased and connected the lines and a simple childlike cat face was staring back at me. I then applied some watercolour. After that moment, animals starting popping out of my subconscious. By closing my eyes, I somehow gave myself permission to try and removed all judgment to make it look a “real”. Working from my imagination gives me an incredible freedom to create. It’s magical . . . I never know what I will create next.”
