My approach to painting is instinctual, energetic and bold with a love of powerful colour and gesture. The inspiration in my drawings and paintings and love of India in all its colours – beginning from early in life, has lead my work to resonate deeply with my Indian connection.

My colour palette is imbued with India and the tropics. Experiencing there the ritual of flowers, animals and shrines within a rural way of life in a tropical landscape enriched my understanding of the importance of being connected to a true self where passion, fluidity, energy and openness of spirit is all expressed in the work. The wildness of the landscape provides a structure to express my own personal language of paint that has evolved over time, as I feel painting to be a language. The spontaneous gestures and subliminal images that emerge into my drawings and paintings are a powerful part of my everyday life and love of connection to Art History.
