ARTISTS STATEMENT

The main body of my work consists predominately of oil on linen, of which the subject matter  is still life, everyday domestic items, naturally observed through my own personal and imaginative perception.  This is a constant and continuous development. Inspiration for my work is brought about by my love of colour, shapes and texture.
