My years of experience teaching deaf children helped me to develop a strong understanding of how feelings, emotion and knowledge can be communicated visually. I draw on this when creating art, painting in essence, the emotions of life. I use transparent watercolour to build shape, form and create atmosphere. Colour palette is very important to me in helping to create this ‘soul’ in a painting. I enjoy the subtleties of glazing to build shape and form and develop the colours I feel best convey the atmosphere I am after.
