I have always had an interest in art, although I never really did any until I took up a brush five years ago. I am essentially self taught and I have tried various mediums but found watercolour the most rewarding.

Watercolour is a challenging medium. Manipulated it can give great texture to cloth, buildings and skin tone in the painting. There is also the ability to use its translucent light and colours to create atmosphere.

I enjoy painting buildings, animals but particularly people in vignettes of life. I hope my work inspires intrigue in the viewer, and prompts questions about who the subjects are, where are they and what is happening.

If you derive pleasure from looking at my work then I am indeed satisfied.
