I delve into reality including nature as well as, stream of consciousness and memory to create images from both the everyday and dream worlds.

My artwork, while representational in nature, contains a strong abstract component.  I feel it is this duality contributes to the unique substance, texture and dimension of the work.

Thematically, these paintings range from still life, seascapes and landscapes to dreamscapes. Recently, I have been exploring figurative work. Also, and to varying degrees, my interest and affinity for textile design is reflected in my artwork. I am particularly drawn to intense colours, patterns, the sensual and exotic.
