I began my artistic journey in oils, but soon discovered the alure of water-colours.

As a self-taught artist, I studied the styles of the masters, both past and present, that has equiped me with the techniques, nature provides an abundance of subject material and inspiration. My passion for capturing glimpses of nature and painting them in clean, clear colour as nature intended is the aspiration that drives me to strive for growth and development as an artist.

A fascination with colour has led me to research pigments, their characteristics and their influence on how we are able to present colours in our craft, for me, this will be a never-ending quest for improvement.
