My love of art allows me to explore my interest in the construction of materials that alters throughout its life cycle. I try to capture the range of colours and textures of subjects as they succumb to the ageing process while maintaining or developing a new beauty. I find the process of painting exciting and satisfying, even when the end product doesn't match the effort! I create my work at Medstead studios near Alton, which allows me the freedom to explore many themes and subjects. I have painted by commission and enjoy collaborative projects.
