My paintings are largely figurative, they are based on something seen that I react to. Sometimes I draw first and then make paintings from drawings. Colour, movement and rhythm are important to me, I like things to be playful and open but serious. I  like working with oil paint on board which I prepare with gesso. I also like working with collage, ink, gouache and watercolour.
