“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.”
