My pictures celebrate the beauty of the natural and man-
Since first visiting Greece and Sierra Leone I have been attracted to the intensity of light and shade in The Mediterranean and Africa. I use watercolour, gouache, acrylic and pastel or a combination of these mediums. I took up painting twenty years ago after a career in teaching.
My paintings try to create an ideal world of the imagination, a fantasy, an escape, to lift the spirit in a discordant world.
