i began making visual art because of the affect i felt when i first witnessed a francis bacon painting. i was depressed and apathetic- i could feel no joy, no sadness, no ecstasy- only gray; until one day i was shown these images. i make art in the hope that i too can will people on the brink of suicide into life.

my images abstract the figure to evoke emotion in the viewer. the colours are to draw you in.

i hope one day to live from making these paintings. any query or question are greatly appreciated
