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