A long time film and television producer in Canada, I now find my creativity needs a more personal outlet. I paint landscapes that are part memory -- sometimes based on photos taken from moving cars. Or I indulge in a love of rich, juicy colours in soft pastel works of flowers or cakes. Recently I have been experimenting with digital flower compositions, that evoke the atmosphere of Dutch flower paintings – a relic of my South African heritage, perhaps.
I work in pastels, oils or watercolour, as well as using photographic and digital technology in some of my most recent work. Having done a Foundation Course I am doing Fine Arts at the London Institute, Byam Shaw.
