Artist Statement:

My goal is to celebrate our local woods and river, waterlilies and willows, turtles and geese, our village.  In my paintings I freely adapt traditions of Chinese painting and Bonnard’s colour methods.  When I kayak on the Thames I experience timelessness and surprise, wonder and delight.  These are the feelings I want to share.
