My paintings are made with Watercolour, Acrylic, Pastels and sometimes a mixture of media. I aim to represent a place or thing but also to convey to the viewer my inspiration and feelings about what I am painting. I want to look beyond the reality.
Composition and design are key elements in my paintings so that there is feeling of balance. There will always be a sense of light and space. I work hard to master the media that I use so that the painting seems to flow beyond technique and to be made with a playful curiosity and seemingly without struggle.
