I love flowers. I paint their voluptuous folds of petals, their rich muted colours and the razzle dazzle and shimmer of light dancing across their surface. Trying to capture the ecstasy of emotion in a single flower, and share it with others, is my driving force. Oil paint and canvas are my medium. My favourite thing – painting time with my music turned up, and my mind turned down. My favourite painting – always the last one I completed. My favourite quote – If not now when?
