"I think the two adjectives that best describe my work are "romantic" and "eclectic". I continually draw inspiration from the places I travel, the people I meet and the books I read. I swore that if this ever became a job - I'd quit. Fortunately I've been able to avoid that, and I confess that sometimes I feel a bit like the cat that ate the canary.


It's been a great ride, and a lot of fun sharing my experiences through my art. I like to think my paintings reflect the joy I feel when I'm painting them, and through them I might perhaps be able to leave the world a slightly more beautiful place than when I came in."
