Nothing gives me greater pleasure than being in my studio after a great hike.
It’s not that I want to recreate exactly what I have seen.
By conjuring up the atmosphere and the depth of the multiple layers of colour and light, my work stirs a certain familiarity and a connection.
I began painting with a water colour set given to me when I was five years old. Since then I have dabbled in a multitude of media including stained glass, clay hand building, pencil sketches, oil and presently acrylic painting. My style ranges from abstract to impressionistic to straight from the heart.
Preserving our natural world and staying close to it, is everything to me.
