I have been interested in portraiture for much of my high school years. After school, I intend to study law and arts at university, having discovered that I require art as a form of personal release and emotional expression as opposed to a sole career pursuit; however, I am passionate about continually developing my artistic skills. I paint not only for individual reasons, but for what I can communicate to others – there is nothing more beautiful than creating artworks which are the catalyst for a shared viewing experience, often by people who otherwise have little in common.
