Life for me is at its most wonderful when viewed through the eyes of a child. My paintings reflect this through bold colours and intense enjoyment of detail.
I try hard to capture the fullness of a moment; not only as seen with the eyes, but also as an emotional experience and as an expression of how I see the world.
My art is inspired by my years in South America and by my love of the English Countryside and my close proximity to the Peak District national park.
Another theme that my creations are threaded with involves the blurring of the relationship between the indoors and the out. I love the comfort of being able to capture a piece of the outdoors and to hang it on my wall like a window.
