Biography

I have loved to paint and draw throughout my life. Recently I have focused on painting in watercolour and this medium has become my passion. I enjoy watercolours for their luminous glow and unpredictability. I also like the ability of this medium to express photographic style techniques such as depth of focus and layering of translucent light. After sculpting animals for twelve years I can't resist bringing them into my paintings. I often paint them in groups interacting with each other and their environment. This leads to interesting designs and stories within the painting. I have also developed a keen interest in painting still life, taking up the challenge of turning the ordinary into the extraordinary.
