I enjoy the immediate impact of large paintings.I am thrilled and delighted by deep intense colour and the effect of dramatic tonal contrasts on the canvas.
Painting is not a job, it is not a hobby, nor is it just something I simply do. Painting is an extension of who I am. To me, art is a synthesis of my personal feelings, the subject or colors that inspire me and my materials and techniques.
It is the way I describe my emotions, my thoughts, my days. My hopes are contained in the colours and the form my brush strokes make.
The paintings may take the shape of a flower study or a landscape or a nude but even the very slightest smudge of colour is applied with passion and a fascination for the effect that it creates on the blank canvas.
