Artist’s Statement 

Many different things have inspired me at different times of my life, even on different days. Sometimes music, nature, memories, other art, particularly Renaissance or Russian or well….... anything. Oh, and I should say, colour and composition are two of my main inspirations.

But you’ll have to look at my paintings and see what you think. I’m inspired by your inspirations!  Here’s a haiku my partner wrote for me, looking at one of my collages. It’s a good artist statement for me, I think.

‘my mountain spirit
silently gliding amidst trees
seeking solace’
