My chosen medium has to be water colour and water colour pencils because through constant glazing I can achieve depth, emotion and with delicate transparencies I can achieve dreamy aspects of light, shade and atmosphere. My art aims to please and to help the viewer see the regular things that we miss through the busy fast pace of modern life.
There is nothing deep or conceptual about my work. I strive to represent what I see as accurately and realistically as my drawing skills will allow. Some say that a photograph would achieve a more accurate result, true- but I could not put into words the deep feelings of satisfaction and joy I receive from painting what I see in watercolour. Having said that, I make no apology for sometimes using a modicum of artistic licence to improve the composition or over all effect of a painting.
I stage my still life with subjects and light that I find exciting.
