I started painting in watercolour as a young child and I’ve just never outgrown it. Something in that mysterious interaction between water and pigment continues to fascinate and inspire me. The nature of water is such that it can’t be controlled and, as a watercolourist, I must let go and enjoy the ride. I am rewarded for this by the many spontaneous surprises watercolour offers.
For the past 18 months I have concentrated on cityscapes. I paint them because I love the energy of cities and am continually fascinated by people. My goal is to capture the interactions between people and the places they live. I can often be found wandering the streets and alleys, sketchbook in hand, capturing those fleeting interactions of everyday life. I enjoy the challenge of drawing and painting the shapes of city life but I judge a work to be successful when it tells a compelling story that draws the viewer in.
