"I started painting watercolours in 1997. I had photographed the landscape most of my life but once I started painting, my vision was so much more acute. I saw things I never noticed before. I was drawn to old wooden and rusted objects such as abandoned houses, old barns and rusty vehicles. However my overriding passion has been trees and leaves - their patterns and lights, reflecting my deep love of the natural world. When I later began acrylic painting , it was like a brand new hobby and I learned to appreciate what one can do with colours and layering of paint. My most recent interests have been abstract landscapes and birds, in both media."
