Colour and surface texture are very important elements in my paintings

Stark visual contrasts of moving between strong blinding  sunlight and black dark interiors full of rich reds , gold and turquoise inhabit my paintings

The forms I use are forms remembered  , experienced or dreamt   Usually it takes six months to a year to digest my travel  experiences in Morocco , France ,Spain and Italy

One of my earliest memories is being put down to sleep in a darkened room with sunlight streaming through the shutters

My paintings are not representations but evocations
