Pattern, colour and natural form are the main focus for my compositions. The inspiration for a painting usually begins with the flowers - their colour and shape along with their relationship to the fabrics and patterns. I love the contrast of the natural form with the geometric patterns of the fabrics. My aim is not to produce faithful reproductions, but to be inspired by the information in front of me to produce a spontaneous reaction. It is an exciting journey which I hope helps to keep my painting alive and fresh.
