“From a very early age I have enjoyed drawing and painting. As a student I did science but now I feel I am back on track doing the thing I really wanted to do. I am basically a tonal painter. Light and the effect it has on the landscape and on the familiar objects which surround me at home,has always caught my attention.I sketch in pencil and watercolour but most of my finished paintings are done in acrylic,a medium which I find very versatile and unconstraining.”
