"My work is an emotional response to my experience of places, from landscapes to cityscapes. I love to observe shapes and colours as they emerge and dissolve in the ever-changing light. My paintings are contemporary, semi-abstract, colourful - combining impressionism, graphic detail and a personalised colour palette."
