I cannot envisage a life without my painting, without art. It is one of my great loves. Indeed I take great joy in going to galleries and take inspiration from other artists such as those from the Art Nouveau period. Many of my paintings come under the banner of Decorative Realism, when the realistic subject matter is painted in a decorative manner (such as my painting entitled “Our West Kirby Tree”).
As you would see from my website, I cover a very broad palette of subject matter. I simply have to paint whatever inspires me and would hate to be tied down to painting similar subjects all the time. Joy is what I love to portray, whether it be in a flower, a person, a landscape or even buildings in the rain! Light creates changing shapes all the time, that is what I love, that is what I paint.
