Interview with Artist


Sipping with Narcissus

Artist Statement

I worked for many years only in watercolour because it filled my need for detail and the soft blending of colour. I am now going in another direction, painting in acrylic in search of more powerful light and richer hue. My style is evolving constantly. Painting in a semi-abstract manner allows me to express my vision along with my love of design and pattern.

I have travelled to many places in the world. My art has allowed me to connect with people in an exciting way. It has been a life long source of enjoyment.
