"Ever since I could hold a pencil in my hand I have doodled, scribbled, drawn and sketched. It is an obsession that has never left me, and I feel most comfortable in my skin when I create something beautiful when I am in touch with my imagination and emotions."

A Blanket of A Blanket of Peace descends upon the Earth - Etching 10 x 14 cm

"Ever since I could hold a pencil in my hand I have doodled, scribbled, drawn and sketched. It is an obsession that has never left me, and I feel most comfortable in my skin when I create something beautiful when I am in touch with my imagination and emotions. For many years now I have painted naïve pictures which are not governed by the rules which realistic artists are bound by. In them I try to capture everyday, ordinary life, gardening, hanging out washing etc. and to depict the beautiful countryside that I was lucky enough to live in. I find great comfort in nature - it lifts my spirits. I try to cheer people up and remind them of the simple pleasures of just existing. My other great obsession is drawing lines and minute details; etching has allowed me to indulge shamelessly in this activity."
