As an artist I prefer to work in oils and collage, but occasionally I revert to watercolor or acrylics.  I work mostly from imagination, drawing inspiration from poems, songs, myths, memory and travels round the world. Although I have listed the main points of my formal art education, I am very aware that an artist never finishes learning new approaches and the use of different media, or a combination of all of them.  That is what is so exciting about being an artist.


  • About Me

    As an artist in oils and mixed media, I draw my inspiration from books I have read, from music and legends, and from my experiences living and traveling in many different countries such as Europe, Scandinavia, the Far East and here in America. Most of my work is from my imagination and also sometimes from memories of people and landscapes which touched me in some way. I try to experiment with different media to reflect the excitement of movement and color in my pieces. Ideas often come to me in the middle of the night, or while sitting quietly in my studio, or reading. The pieces that seem to interest the viewer are almost always the ones I feel most passionate about myself. Making art is a wonderful way of sharing.
