Artist Body Column 2

“When I paint, I aim to create a point of harmony and peace, a breathing space in our busy lives. As a landscape artist, I paint what catches my attention, either a place that takes my breath away, or the opposite - a place to catch my breath and, as to be expected, they often coincide. I believe and hope that with my work I give others a  chance to observe and appreciate that which is out there for all to see but often missed.”
