After 24 years of teaching Art, I gave up the classroom for the studio... 


Painting is a medium I love to explore, pushing the boundaries and learning from the resulting outcomes. Things can go wrong! But it's what I take from it that matters. 


Although there is often a starting point for each piece, the work begins to take on its own identity beyond that of the subject. Application and removal of media are all part of the evolution of the work. Shapes appear, both obvious and hidden, sometimes imagined. Lines guide, lead, divide and envelop. Colour is delightful and so emotive.
