"I'm after Beauty. I love color, design, old photographs, the Femme Mystique. Captured dreams, weird fleeting ideas I chase with my brush the next day. Some elude my visual form but the sentiment lingers and that is the thrill of the chase. Equally I am in love with painting in the moment, outside, en plein air with nature as my muse. As a respite to my dream chasing, I chase outdoor light, capturing what it feels like to be present, in that place, a fleeting moment."
