I am a colourist who enjoys the watery flow and potential for loose paint application inherent in the watercolour medium. I also like the clean effect of colour against the white paper surface.

My compositions have a Zen-like simplicity that is not easy to achieve, being meticulously designed through careful observation and selection of detail.

My initial inspiration is usually strong shapes.
