My work is primarily still life, and I use oil paints, as I love the rich colours and textures they provide. I mainly paint on canvas, although I sometimes use textured canvas paper designed for oils and oil pastels, and also wood. I like to work on all sizes of canvas. Along with sales to, and commissions for, UK and international customers, my work has been displayed in and bought by London galleries. My flower paintings have proved to be very popular. Artists I admire are Dali, Vermeer, Van Gogh, Warhol, and Georgia O’Keeffe. I enjoy the sensual aspect of her flower paintings, and think that flowers and other plants can, in many ways, resemble the human body. I also like the Realist artists, particularly Audrey Flack. Some of her still life paintings are reminiscent of the old Dutch masters. I also enjoy abstract art, and have completed some commissions in this genre too. I am available for commissions in any genre.
