In 1984 I had an exhibition of
my oil/acrylic, mixed media paintings and my photographs taken
on travels through Spain, in the Casa de Cultura in Javea. This
included paintings I had done in the UK and during my early years
in Spain. On the first night I sold my largest painting to a young
couple from Canada – very exciting.
My ideas are completely composed
in my mind. I then draw and refer to nature or figures from real
life, illustrations, or photographs trying to stylise and interpret
the subject into my own vision. Because I am self-taught I find
I veer towards design as the painting progresses.Of course, as
I live in Spain, the sunlight and sensations of this marvellous
country, have a great influence on my work.
