ARTISTIC STATEMENT
I paint in transparent watercolour. My painting started late in life, and I have not explored other media. Perhaps becasue of my engineering background I enjoy the process of planning a watercolour painting. I find that every painting presents a challenge, and to overcome these challenges it is essential to be fired-up about the painting. Usually something new is learnt, perhaps a new technique, the behaviour of certain pigments or perhaps the struggle between retaining control and having the water control the pigment is better understood.

It has been suggested that an attribute of successful art is "the successful combination of the particular and the universal". I am a figurative painter; hopefully my work sometimes transcends the depiction of the reality I see and try to represent. Regular figure drawing from life led to an early interest in figure and portrait painting; currently however I am mostly engaging in landscape painting, especially waterscapes.
