Works on paper

The Noughties

My work was becoming more abstract when we entered the new millennium, but it was a trip to Morrocco with friends in December 2002 that proved a real turning point: the bright sunshine and vivid colours of North Africa inspired me to embrace a much more vivid palette in my work & as such marked a new departure.

My work post-2000 therefore features a much brighter and wider palette than was the case in previous years, although there were some emotionally dark days in the decade to 2010 when a more sombre palette prevailed.
