Artist's Statement

“A life of travel has resulted in the desire to draw and paint people, animals and landscapes and has influenced my way of working as I strive to create artwork which captures the imagination and tells a story.  I prefer to work from life, where possible but also use, as reference, jottings and sketches, colour notes and photographs, along with memory and imagination.  I rely on feelings and emotion as the artwork progresses and there are some paintings that I just cannot part with.  I hope that by creating images of the natural world I may remind people of the importance of protecting it…..for all our sakes.”
