I have a passion for colour, not in naturalistic terms, but as an expressive vehicle for my feelings. I am a keen gardener and enjoy being outdoors so this is a frequent springboard for ideas, although the final piece can be very abstract. Since November 2003, I have started on a series of abstracts reflecting my love of music. Although I have been painting for more than twenty years, I still want to be surprised by my work. This sustains my interest, and I hope keeps my work fresh.
I have shown work almost continuously since starting to paint, both in exhibitions and galleries, including work in Vienna, Italy and Dallas.
Painting is always a challenge, but I am happy when I paint.
