I have always loved painting flowers. Their bright and happy colours, and an endless series of interesting forms are a continual inspiration. My flowers are usually painted from life. I like to catch that special living essence that makes every flower unique.

Even working late at night in my studio, sometimes I close my eyes and imagine I am in my flowering garden on a warm spring day after rain. In my mind I am surrounded by colours and fragrances. Then I paint this feeling.

Water is forever changing. It's fascinating to watch the way light ripples across the surface of a lily pond at sunset. Or the contrast created by the movement of brightly colour ed fishes in a lily pond. It's a wondrous moment of life.

May your life be filled with love and happiness.
