My style of painting is extremely varied and I enjoy the "letting go" of abstract art.

"Bling it on"

I am an eternal experimenter (if there's such a word). I see something and I think, how can I use that in a work of art? What will this or that piece do if I include it on a canvas? As a result I went through a series of what I call, Bling paintings. This included using anything that glittered, plus some other interesting bits and bobs. I have posted 3 of the works here. Hope you like them.

Zulu Dancers

One of the wonderful things about Africa, is the colour. The colour of the land, the sky, the mountains and the people. Colour vibrates in Africa - rich oranges, deep purples, the intense blue of the sky on a Summer's day and the inky black at night. And the people of Africa, both black and white, wear those colours like a badge.

The Kwa-Zulu Natal area is particularly rich in colour. The tropical vegetation and the damp heat bring out the most vibrant colours imaginable. This pastell of two Zulu dancers is typical of that richness.
