Inspired by the swirls in Van Gogh’s work, and koi fish, the Swim Trilogy was created in three days of intense colour therapy.

With each panel featuring a different colour scheme with contrasting elements, I felt like my paintbrush was possessed by some force other than my own hand. I was entranced with each brush stroke; seeing the patterns come to life before my eyes.
