Artwork Statement

'I have always been drawn to realistic, representational painting. The time spent living, studying and travelling in Europe and North America has reinforced that interest as I had access to the paintings of the great art galleries and museums. Before the period I spent studying, my work had mostly been figure drawing and painting and portraits executed rapidly. The years spent at Studio Simi were literally eye-opening; more than anything, Signorina Simi taught careful observation of subtleties of tone and colour. The manual skill to translate this 'seeing' into a drawing or painting took persistence and patience to acquire, but it was immensely satisfying to be able to see and do more with each work as time passed.'
