I am fascinated by built structures, particularly ecclesiastical buildings. The wonder of how the vaulted ceilings were achieved and the immenseness and rich complexity of detail that build as parts to the whole.  Many old buildings have been reconfigured with glass roofs to provide more space and light, I have used these glass ceilings as a subject to paint.  

I also paint Fruit, Flowers, and Cakes. I think it’s the seductiveness of these subjects, the wonderful array of flowers is a constant source of inspiration for my work, I love Lilies, Roses, Tulips, they force me to paint them, the cakes I enjoy are Tarts, Eclairs and Meringues. 

 

These non figurative paintings  require close observation and attention to colour, form and pattern, providing a challenge of paint manipulation.
