I am an artist, designer and creator of online art and creativity courses.
My paintings are informed by the real and the imaginary. A background in textile and ceramic design is evident in the stylised, abundant and colourful forms used in still life, landscape and floral paintings. I am a colourist painter, a variety of painting and mark making techniques are used to layer colour and shapes, this adds an ethereal element to my work.
I draw inspiration from travel, nature, dreams, seasons, sentiments and thoughts as well as everyday surroundings. Observation and drawing are important parts of the creative process. Working intuitively, I allow paintings to develop over time. My artworks are presented to convey intrinsic beauty, a feeling or memory of a place or impression.
South Africa is where I was born, I have lived in England since 1999, based in Berkshire since 2005.
