My current work takes its starting point from observational drawing of prosaic objects such as teapots, jugs and cups. I enjoy exploring composition and colour in evocative groupings of these inanimate objects. I like the interesting juxtaposition of collage, drawn and printed elements. I also find the challenge of resolving oil paintings keeps any complacency at bay, a constant quest which is very stimulating.
