To start, could you tell us a bit about yourself and how you got into art?

I’ve always had a deep passion for art and anything creative, whether it’s using my hands, playing with colours, or indulging in aesthetics. My love for creation knows no bounds, and I’ve always had a compulsion to make something. Painting, however, holds a special place in my heart. Over the past year or so, I’ve been fortunate to find the time to create art more regularly, especially after focusing on raising my three wonderful girls.

Can you describe the art you love creating?

Absolutely. I have a deep love for portraits, as I find immense beauty in the human face. The individuality and the ability of a face to express emotions that resonate with others are truly captivating. While I do work in a more realistic style with oils, currently, I’m drawn to the bold and vibrant style of pop art. I love using bright, clean lines and minimal colours and techniques to evoke those emotions and bring out the essence of the subjects I paint.

What influences your artistic vision and style?

Colour has a profound influence on my art and my life. I’m surrounded by color, be it in my fashion choices or home decor. Words, especially music lyrics, also play a significant role. Lyrics have the power to lift or dampen moods, evoke memories, and transport us to different times and places. Because of this, I always incorporate written words onto my art pieces to infuse them with deeper meaning.

Are there any present-day artists whose creations resonate with you and that you find particularly compelling?

One contemporary artist who stands out for me is Ashley Longshore. Her work is vibrant, quirky, and utterly over the top, much like her personality. I’m drawn to her bold, unique style and her unapologetic approach to art.

Among the various materials you engage with, which one do you find the most fulfilling to work with, and what draws you to it?

Acrylic is my preferred medium. Its quick drying time and ease of colour mixing and manipulation make it ideal for my creative process. I can work fluidly, make changes on the fly, and achieve the depth and texture I desire. The versatility of acrylics suits my style perfectly.

Can you walk us through your artistic process, from the initial spark of an idea to the realisation of the finished artwork?

My ideas can strike at any moment and tend to snowball into a collection concept. I typically work on 2 or 3 pieces simultaneously. First, I do rough sketches in a sketchbook using watercolours to experiment with colour ideas, although the final piece often differs. After deciding on the composition, I spend quite some time selecting and altering colours, sometimes even procrastinating in the process. Once I’m ready, I start layering colours and meticulously work on sharp, clean lines from the very first layer. This is time-consuming, with each colour requiring around 7 to 10 layers to achieve the desired depth. Finally, I add lyrics, quotes, or poems that resonate with the piece to complete the original artwork before scanning it for limited edition acrylic glass versions.

Could you share some insights into your current creative endeavours and projects?

Currently, my passion revolves around music and old-school Hollywood glamour. I’m working on a collection of iconic film star portraits that is continuously growing. I’m also exploring my take on some of my favourite album covers. Beyond art, I’ve just completed an online diploma in nutrition and am pursuing online apothecary study courses. Learning and health are my other passions, so I’m always engaged in both creating and expanding my knowledge.
