I am inspired by people and animals. I am interested in the way they behave and their thoughts. My art has taken on a life of its own recently, following a path of exploration into portraiture, wild life and nature, and also different media and combinations of media within one painting.
My paintings are mainly in watercolour and acrylic. I love the freedom I have when I paint with watercolour. Water has a life of its own and I enjoy the slow process of layering up the colours of water to see the final results.
I feel less free when I paint with acrylic, but enjoy being able to concentrating on the details. The fast drying process, which is a hinderance to many artists, works in my favour as I can be quite impatient sometimes.
I love being challenged. I am in my element when I am asked to paint something I have not tried before. This is why I am always urging people to give me suggestions; to force me out of my comfort zone.
I dare you to challenge me....... get in touch!
