Statement

After thirty years as a botanical artist in South Africa and Great Britain I have spent the last few years deliberately breaking away from the constraints of precise painting.  It has been a time of experiment, of intellectual and technical challenge. 

Expressing myself visually is an intense drive. The meeting of  brush and canvas is a highly sensual act and is an affirmation of that self which responds intensely to form, colour and shape. I am also fascinated by the myriad complexities of our world, the juxtapositions and contradictions of life which at a times can seem so absurd. It is all these elements that keep me constantly rising to new challenges.
