creativety comes from a number of different sources, observation or even conversation, “inspiration always surprises me in the ever unusual ways it catches me. although working in the pottery industry for so long and being creative with clay, it is always the joy of painting which is my first love and keeps me returning to canvas. the creative process in art is self propelling and sometimes all
consuming, it comes in waves and has forever altered the way in which I view my surroundings”.
“when painting i like to use a variety of mediums as i feel the need to experiment and master as many methods as possible. i sometimes work from crude sketches as well as photographs as a varied approach allows for more creativety”.
