"Colour is everything to me in my work. It's mood, it's feeling, it's my escape, and for me it's why I'm a painter. I think everyone sees the world in a different way but I experience it a lot through colour. The brighter the more beautiful. Strangely in my own living environment everything has to be white or grey! I suppose colour has too much of an emotional response to me. I need to live in calm white spaces. But these are perfect to hang my work on! My work looks great on white, black or grey. "

 

"One of my idols is David Hockney. I love the fact that as a most mature painter his colours are becoming even wilder and wilder. That is pure 'I don't give a damn' confidence!"

 

"In my recent works I am developing I have been studying 'Garden of Earthly Delights' by Hieronymus Bosch. it is full of animals and women cavorting and playing in a utopia. I have borrowed this title for my most recent group of paintings and most of them feature women, water and animals."
