I used to paint, in fact when I started art school, that's what I thought would be my focus. I always drew and painted since I was very young, and was enrolled in extra-curricular art classes as far back as I can remember. Now I paint with dye, mixing all my own colours, staining fibres in structures into compositions of pattern and colour. I sometimes draw, but rarely do I paint. But coming across an artist like Peter Doig reminds me of why I loved to paint and my continuing love affair with colour. The top painting is "Reflection(what does your soul look like)", and the bottom piece is called "White Canoe".
