Influence

verb
/ˈɪn.flu.əns/

The capacity to have an effect on the character, development, or behaviour of someone or something, or the effect itself.

I have been strongly influenced by artists such as Chagall, Kandinsky and Matisse because of their bold use of colour and shape and vivid focus on place. I am also heavily influenced by places I have visited and this is reflected in my art. Locations such as Nice, Marrakesh and Positano continue to resonate with and inspire me.

I enjoy using mixed media and each of my pieces is designed to be a focal point and stand out in any room. Geometrical shapes and patterns feature widely in my pictures and suggest my interest in abstract structure and form...

 

Memory is an abstract painting. It does not present things as they are, but rather as they feel.
