"I like to layer and juxtapose patterns to create energy
I see pattern everywhere Pattern is part of life. Italian Damask, French toile, English chintz in each pattern you can trace a whole world. Every culture develops its own characteristic patterns, embedded with centuries of history and tradition. Pattern holds memories.
I have no fear of colour
Colour can expand a space or turn a small room into a jewel box.
Colour is my accent , my punctuation. Colour for me is a painterly process. Drawing from the great masters I have learnt from Tiepolo the purity of celestial blues, from Raphael intensity of tone and from Caravaggio the delight in the mysteries of dark and light.
Colour has a symbiotic relationship with place and for everyone certain places are associated with certain colours.
Scale - is that object too big or too small for the space?
-THERE ARE NO RULES"
