After the Dadaists it seems that art can be almost anything. For myself, I prefer to try to express beauty. A work of art can be figurative or abstract, but I believe art has the deepest effect on the emotions when it is beautiful rather than shocking.

In pursuit of the ability to paint and draw accurately I have attended courses at West Dean College and many life-drawing sessions at the Art House in Lewisham, and learned portrait painting in oils at Morley College, London.

I love the rococo but also the plainer, simpler lines and impressions of British mid-twentieth century art. There is hardly any period of art that does not have something interesting to show us.

With portraiture I always look for what I like about the sitter before I start.
