To create pictures is to be involved in a wonderful and mysterious activity that enhances our lives. I believe passionately in the power of art to transform ourselves and the environment in which we live. I am primarily an abstract painter and my work rarely describes a specific place or location . For me, it is the sensations and experiences, the shapes, colours and textures that combine to create the unexpected.

Look forward to seeing you there!
