paintings I consider most successful are the ones that have perfectly captured
my illumined world. A visitor to one of my exhibitions described some of my work
as 'reflections of a certain tranquility'. Like many others, I am immersed in
the conflict between contemplation and the demands of daily living. But, in a
luminous watercolour scene, the conflict can be stilled and this life appears
serene. It is this serenity I hope to convey in my paintings.
