I have drawn and painted all my life, and living in the tropics, the lushness and vibrancy of the surroundings is a constant source of inspiration. The surroundings burst with life and abundance! Everywhere you look, there are subjects crying out to be painted, and I oblige as often as possible.

My primary medium is watercolour, but I've recently started painting in oils and acrylics, but still find the way watercolour behaves suits how I paint and remains my favourite medium.

I dream of painting full-time one day, but the life of a professional artist is not generally a prosperous one, so, for the moment, it remains a part-time pursuit.

Meantime, I paint as often as possible, and hope to do so until I'm unable to, because of age - or death!

It's a very satisfying occupation, and I am happiest in my studio toiling away (though admittedly it can also be frustrating - I've always said my mood is only as good as how well my current painting is progressing) .
