My work is a record of my life- told through the stories of travel, love and my experiences in the environment that surround me daily. Characteristic touchstones of the neighbourhood, historic buildings and emotionally significant settings trigger my inspiration; by capturing them with paint on canvas. I can preserve and continue that relationship as I share it with others.
Layers of oil offer me the freedom to control my process, as I adjust the colours & values in a piece.
