"Having recently returned to the UK from Portugal, I am experimenting both with mediums and textures, learning to adapt to the different and less bright London skies. Colour however is still my chief motivation. Previously in the Algarve I had been working in acrylic on canvas. influenced by the region's wonderful light. I am repeatedly drawn to water both artistically and geographically, which I interpret in a loose, impressionistic style. After a professional business career of 31 years and attaining a degree in "History of Art from the University of Kingston, I resumed my creative journey as an artist who is passionate about painting. I exhibited in Portugal from 2007. I undertake commissions.
