Working in both watercolour and acrylic, I continue to explore new

concepts and techniques in order to achieve light and texture in my

work, attempting to generate a strong and positive emotional

response from the viewer.


My works in watercolour range from realism to complete

abstraction.  Always,  I simplify the representational images and

focus on bringing forth light, atmosphere and mood.  I often use

negative backgrounds to push up the value and create depth.


My acrylic works are usually more abstracted, although the design

usually is inspired by an idea or a favoured theme.  Sculpting with

plaster to create texture, I then work quickly and instinctively with

total freedom.  The work develops spontaneously and color and

value create light and depth.  With no recognizable symbols, the

viewer is encouraged to respond with a personal interpretation of

the work.
