My landscapes have mostly been inspired by the surroundings of Altidona, my medieval hilltop village in Italy. It is idyllic with views over vineyards, olive groves and the sea.

I cannot resist flowers and I have them in my home at all times of the year. They often get translated into paint… nature is unbeatable!

The effect of light on objects is endlessly fascinating and the magic as they emerge upon the page is totally absorbing. I love it.

Decorative Realism is an expression coined from the influence of artists such as Alphonse Mucha, Gustav Klimt and Charles Rennie Mackintosh. There is always an element of realism enhanced with decorative abstraction creating a unique piece of work.

My work teaching art students required the ability to demonstrate every aspect of painting; from still life to portraiture and everything in between. This is reflected in my wide palette of subject matter and body of work.
