Paris 1984. After a year in SE Asia soaking up the newness of everything, including the art; Wassily Kandinsky’s huge abstract reproductions are the first European art to hit me to touch my heart and soul. This was the start of my journey not only into pure abstraction, but also of not being afraid to work intuitively; in the beginning through drawing as a very immediate form of expression; and later with colour and form. Below are just a few of the many works I have created from how I feel at the time about things, life, events, what I see and interpret, what wants to come into being, what I imagine.
Below are some of my favourites.....
