I am inspired by the light animating a space. I paint the rooms that man has left for a while, or the space to dream, sometimes it is simple everyday scenes, sometimes more exotic , often it is the very rustic interiors that say the most. There is often a narrative. I work in oil, watercolour and graphite. I paint with awe, love and spirit and these have to reflected in the work or they are put aside. My paintings are contemplative, some are melancholic and romantic, they celebrate beauty and craftsmanship.
