Artists StatementAs a child I loved to draw and paint and at school I excelled in the subject. After leaving school, I attended the Southgate College in London where I studied dress design and associated Industry, then working in that field in London upon leaving.
I then spent a period travelling Europe, settling in Germany for a good many years before moving on to Southern Spain. It was here that I studied under the well-known British artist Noel Gregory. I found that I was inspired by the scenery in Spain and began to paint landscapes and seascapes. Since then I have discovered many other subjects that I am drawn to paint.
At the moment I am focusing almost entirely on still life subjects painted in oils in a realistic manner, hoping to build up a large body of work, although they have proved very sought after among my collectors. I feel that it is a subject that can be broadened and I have the freedom to experiment with both unusual compositions, subject matter and lighting effects, for me the the possibilities are endless.
My world of creating is a roller coaster of emotions, demanding, all-consuming and a constant challenge and I love it!
