“I continue to be inspired by the beauty and harmony which exists in nature and my paintings are an attempt to recreate and capture this. My earliest memories from childhood are of me sitting in a tree, overlooking a ravine, watching the first rays of the morning sun as they mix with ribbons of mist rising from the fields of tall grass before slowly fading away together.
Irrespective of whether I am painting a woman’s body, still-life or a landscape I try to use lines and colours to record this feeling of harmony on canvas. Pictures often come to me in my dreams at night – with the combination of colours and the composition so very real. When I wake I quickly sketch the images I have seen in my dreams before they disappear in the daylight.”
Picasso, Claude Monet, Pierre Auguste Renoir, J.M.W.Turner, Francisco Goya
