Artist's Statement

Painting is my passion. I love the feel of a brush in my hand, I love the smell of paint and I especially love to watch the brush, seemingly under its own control, dance over a surface transforming it with a myriad of movement and colour. I have wanted to be an artist all my life, but the moment I saw my first Arthur Rackham illustration my artist desire galvanised, there was no turning back. Then Van Gough entered my life and beckoned me further along the path with his unbridled passion. To marry the precision of Rackham with the passion of Van Gough has been my aim ever since.

My work is also informed by my strong sense of the connectedness of everything and everyone. I like to tell stories and humour often underpins my work as it has always done in my life. Life is to be celebrated and lived to the full – for me, this can only happen with passion, humour and a sense of belonging.

I use many mediums; oil, acrylic, watercolour, pastel, charcoal and ink. But my deepest love and respect goes to oil paint – it is the queen of queens, the goddess of mediums. It is rich and deep and luscious. Oil paint refuses to be hurried, it demands consideration and patience, yet it rewards the artist many times over with the complexity and intensity of its finish.

I love to paint; painting is my passion.
