I am an artist. I travel, paint and draw. My art celebrates the world around me. I like to work from reality, wherever possible drawing and painting directly from life, the person and the landscape. I enjoy people approaching me while I work to look and chat about my picture. This is part of the connection I enjoy between art and the world.
The connection in all my paintings is Colour, Light and a Story, that invites you to look a little more closely.
My ideas come from something I see that creates a ‘zing’ in my head. Sometimes I dream a painting. In my studio, I use my sketchbooks, the drawings and photos from my travels, arranging and linking different images to create the story for each painting. I paint in oils, watercolours and watercolour pencils. I draw with paint, watercolour pencils, charcoals, inks, pastels and with wax crayons.
I have paintings in several private collections in Britain, Germany, Australia, USA and in public collections in Australia including the Queensland Art Gallery.
