Inspired by my travels abroad , my main fascination is with local markets, whether local produce, flea markets or art and craft markets. They tell you so much about the lifestyles and artistic traditions of the country and opens one's eyes to new colour combinations, patterns and textures.
My Still Life sculptural wall art is inspired by simple kitchen displays of food waiting to be prepared- like oil paintings of the old masters or the colourful foodie magazines of today.
My customers often say its the memories of their own holidays and particular times that they relate to when they see my work
