"I’m limited with my creative boundaries with everything else I do in my life but with art I’m free."
I’ve always been creative in my real work (the world of finance), but never tempted myself with art. I never considered that my creativity could reach beyond financial numbers. Two years ago all that changed when I painted for the first time in my life.
I love the unlimited boundaries that I can do whatever I want. No one is going to tell me that I shouldn’t do it, or that I can’t do it, or it’s not right. There’s a complete freedom and liberty around painting.
I like the challenge not knowing exactly what I’m going to create, not knowing exactly what the process is going to be. The beauty of it is that I’m starting with a new canvas every time. I’ll surprise myself…watching images come to life that I never expected.
I feel an emotional connection around my art. It’s real. It’s not contrived. It’s totally genuine. It’s raw and I love that.
