I believe that art must evoke a positive or negative response from the viewer, it needs to be all consuming, it is all consuming!" – Vesna Peko-Luketic

I derive my inspiration from the visual image however, Im more interested in the inner feel, the essence of an object or a subject. I am not only concerned with the outer shell or the mere visual representation of a form or an object rather I am drawn to its innate ethereal quality and this is what inspires my art and takes precedence over reality. I source inspiration from life finding endless subject matter from life. The characters in my art are people whom I have seen in clubs, bars, restaurants; they are recreated in my mind in order to express the lyricism of rhythm, music and dance. I am fascinated by the power of colour and energy of colour, the flicker of light, the fracturing of light; a kaleidoscope of light creating a powerful and passionate illusion of movement, rhythm and energy. The manipulation of image through the use of colour and light allows me to create the illusion of space, depth, and movement yet equally contained on the surface of the picture plane.
