  • Artist’s Statement

    As an artist I paint to express feelings about my observations. I make a personal and individual statement about the environment in which I live. I don’t paint what I see, rather I paint my emotional and intellectual response to the visual world surrounding me, and watercolour, and acrylic allow me the freedom and creativity to do this. It is an exciting process capturing the essence of my world, ranging from impressionist realism to more abstract concepts, by analyzing the underlying structure of colour,shape and form.

  • Biography

    I paint boats from fishing boats to huge ocean going vessels and I capture the light in the many moods created in the ever changing ocean environment.
