I paint in this beautiful land: the land of Provence, of mountains and seascapes, of vineyards, poppies, lavender fields and the salt marshes of the Camargue where the pink flamingoes grace us with their brightly coloured presence.
It is hardly surprising, considering the inspirational back-drops of the countryside and the stunning clear light of the sun, that hundreds of artists have come here to make it their home. Van Gogh, Matisse, Picasso, Cézanne to name but a few lived and painted here.
Like the weather I am a seasonal painter. On the cooler days of the winter months you may find me in my studio and with the first breath of Spring you will find me painting ‘en plein air’ or indeed on a beautiful winters day!
January sings out with almond blossom, swiftly chasing the bright yellow mimosa; tulips and iris’s come in hot pursuit. There is the bright green of the new growth in the vineyards and the blossom on all the fruit trees. One delight after another!
