Artist Statement

As a  child  I chose to paint the rooftops visible from my parents window.  I  have always loved painting all kinds of buildings from ancient to the most  contemporary.   I believe that all buildings have a certain energy of their own which is independant of the way they are used by the people who inhabit them.  I do not have a preconceived idea of how a particular image will evolve, but I prefer to work instinctively and let the buildings divide the painting into different blocks of colour.  I will experiment with surfaces and techniques and I will work with all sorts of media such as  collage, ghesso, plaster, oils, acrylics and inks.  My dramatic use of colour permeates many of the pictures I paint.  Colour and lines attract me and as I work I let the colours bleed into one another.
