Practising artist and researcher of history of art.  Main medium of expression is painting.  Also experiment with mixed media, sometimes introducing printing methods such as monoprint, etching, collagraph and lino-cut.  Most recent work contains colourfully painted jewel-like scenes with an air of mystery.

The depiction of light and vivid colour shown in the Impressionist and Post-Impressionist artists' paintings has given me much inspiration.  As has thepaintings  of the Surrealist artists.
