What I paint...

I never saw myself as a landscape painter.

I had the usual classical art education-anatomy,life drawing,sculpture,history of art ,history of architecture.
My first love is the ballet and the theatre. I worked as artist in residence for theatres and a few national trust properties.
I developed a swift method of working to capture movement and atmosphere necessary for such ...working on paper.
Since I started painting landscapes I've found the same excitement I had with movement in the changing light and atmosphere .
I'm in love with colour and texture.
