Further information

My subject matter is something we are all familiar with, the domestic interior. People’s homes, the way they decorate them, arrange furniture and their knick-knacks, the amount of time spent inside them, all say a lot about people in general. Using acrylics, I paint thinly, often putting washes on top of each other to build the effects that I want.
