I am inspired by the calm beauty and "magical" quality of Early Italian Renaissance paintings, delicately balanced between the real world of observation and the inner world of the imagination. I aim to achieve these in my work.

This exhibition focused on my native garden. The paintings and etchings reflect the colours, light, forms and patterns of the changing seasons and times of day. My process involves a complex but intuitive translation informed by the Renaissance art I love.
