I enjoy experimenting with all mediums but watercolour and acrylic are the ones I find most satisfying. I have come to realise that it’s not ‘what you paint’ that is important, but ‘how you paint it.
My inspiration comes from a wealth of resources of my own life experiences and through years of world travel. My latest work has 'lovingly' evolved from marine and coastal influences through time spent on location studying pattern, form, light and texture. The application of paint reflects my emotional response towards the subject which is applied with an impressionistic and semi abstract approach. I still, always maintain elements of representational value by staying true to the essence of the subject. I hope, that I convey to the viewer a sense of emotion and mood which was present at the time of painting.
I have learned much from the masters of impressionism, but Monet and Matisse alight my heart and soul.
