Artist Statement:

‘My medium of choice is traditional oil paint. I have always focused on architecture and landscape. I love to paint Plein Air to keep my visual artistry skills up and then also work from imagination. My paintings with houses in them are most often thought up right in my head. I like to use bold and bright colours and interesting perspectives. The piece I donated, “Long Winding Road” is from imagination.’
