“For me painting is a celebration of life and how light and color interact.  The real joy is in the challenge and complexity and getting it right. I constantly strive to hold myself to the highest standards. “

When I am not in the studio painting I am dreaming about painting or outside somewhere with my camera and sketch book scouting out wonderful, inspirational moments to capture.

Working in watercolor, oil and acrylics  loves working in realism with a focus on intimate details with saturated living colours. I often imagine that I am sculpting with paint to create dimension and lift. I always approach  my work with enthusiasm and energy, preferring natural subjects – in particular flowers, animals and birds and sea & landscapes.  Recently has rediscovered painting figures once again.

Over the years, I have developed a distinctive style, full of life and often with a sense of whimsy.
