“It is not enough to place colors, however beautiful, one beside the other; colors must also react on one another. Otherwise, you have cacophony” – Henri Matisse.
I trained in textile design and find the influence of pattern, colour and form all around me. Predominantly I paint still life, and I strive to convey an emotional rather than a literal interpretation of those things in relation to one another.
I work in oil, watercolour, pastel, mixed media.
