Influences:

I have always been inspired by the textures, colours and shapes found in nature, and over the years this has led to the semi-abstract work I now produce. I love the work of Hundertwasser, Klimt, Pierre Bonnard Andy Goldsworthy, Marj Bond, Victoria Crowe and Charles MacQueen, to name but a few.
