Natural forms, textures and architecture are my sources of inspiration. My main interest is in colour, and those of flowers, trees and birds. Works of painters I see in museums and galleries also have strong influences. I often experiment with innovative combinations of hues. The world is full of beautiful and surprising images that greet the eye.
