I trained as an artist in both Paris and Florence accumulating a solid basis of draughtsmanship on which to base my recognisable style of dramatic light and movement. I try in my art, to lift the viewer’s heart a little, and I hope to make work that is accessible to all, and to bridge the gap between traditional and contemporary. I am obsessed with colour in my work, echoing the colours and patterns of the subject I have chosen to paint in bolder combinations in the background. I find the intensity of patch of pure pigment, cadmium orange next to deep purple in a tiger’s coat, for example, is far more interesting than a faithfully lifelike representation of colour.
