I am a painter currently living in Houston Texas, after many years in California. I work in oils, acrylics and watercolours. I'm influenced by 30 years of living in South Africa, Europe, South East Asia and California. Inspired by Impressionists, I paint typical scenes from the places I've lived. At first I painted everything - people, places, nature, animals and structures, using very vivid colours to reflect the temperature and light of those places. I find endless inspiration in the commonplace.
I now paint mostly structures, nature and still lifes.
Everything in life has an atmosphere, a feeling of equal amounts of stability and change; I feel the sense of impending change and try to include that into my work.
The results are fluid and graceful images from a moment in time, tinged with solitude, beautiful in how they appear now, knowing the moment won’t last.
