My paintings are EXPRESSIVE FIGURATIVE and full of colour. I work en plein air and in the studio, often on a number of canvases at the same time! If I'm working on location, painting has to be done within a two hour time frame before the light changes, and this really concentrates the mind!
Being a painter is not a hobby it is a complete way of life. I admit that it is obsessive! For me my work means dedication, discipline, commitment and a big helping of patience.
To quote a great painter Anthony Eyton RA who mentored me for my MA once said, the only way is 'to keep on keeping on'.
