"I have always loved pictures and have been making them for as long as I can remember. Still life interests me a great deal. I love the sense of order and intimacy that can be felt in a still life picture. We are surrounded by still life in our domestic lives and it is often the simplest combinations of colours, textures and patterns that I find the most beautiful. Colour provides my greatest inspiration and joy when I paint and most of my paintings start with a sense for the colours I feel like working with. The selection of flowers, fruits, crockery and fabric are all in response to that initial colour feeling."
