“What interests me is colour’s ability to evoke, memories, feelings, and worlds . I’ve noticed for example that my colour choices change according to the seasons, time of day, if I travel, and according to my state of mind. I try to express, with sensitivity and reflection, the complex spectrum of feelings and thoughts I have, using combinations of colours informed from my sensory experiences“
