My aim in painting is to create a picture that will leave a strong impression, with impact, that will speak to you, and that will enhance and be very present in your home, almost alive. I use bright, strong colours and textured backgrounds to help me achieve my goal – these are also strong reminders for me of the times I have spent both in India, and the American South West – both areas where colours are strong and brilliant, reflected from a bright sun and deep blue sky. I work principally in acrylics, although I also enjoy working in oils, especially for portraits. In larger pieces, I like to incorporate my unique ‘ secret collage’ where I use hand prepared paper in subtle ways to enhance, and to add texture, value contrast, depth and shadow in a very discreet way.

My Inspiration comes from my friends’ farm in the backwaters of Kerala, where I spend several weeks every year. For me, it is a tropical paradise, hot, languid and a place of retreat and replenishment. The bright colours, food, clothes and indeed every aspect of the love culture have left strong images and impressions upon me, that I feel compelled to express through painting and writing.

3. Portraits (commissions welcome)

Please read the following page for details of portrait commissions – I work in acrylics or oils, though oils will take a considerable time to dry. I love portrait painting, especially capturing the essence of the person or animal, the sparkle in the eye, and I will always want to know more about the person or animal, their character, and your memories of them. These are mostly personal ones as an example, ranging from highly realistic to more expressive, as you prefer:-
