I am highly influenced by spending 16 years in The bahamas and Italy. My work is always changing and reflects how I feel at that stage of my life. Colour is very important for atmosphere and I tend to see colours rather than shapes. I sold many watercolours whilst living in the Caribbean; now I am more into bold acrylics that encompass a variety of styles depending on how I feel when I am in a certain place. I am also starting to use oils more and more. I have won awards in the last 2 annual shows in liphook, Hants.
