Artists Statement:

For me a painting should be what it says; about paint and colour, the image is of secondary importance. It should also reflect the time in which we are living. I like the use of acrylic. The colours are bold and spontaneous, even shocking. We no longer live in the time of timid watercolours and smug oil paints!
