My works

My work whispers. It does not shout.

My artwork is crafted with care and control. Yet, they are not without passion. The passion is in each subject: its shape, subtle colour and tonalities. Its character and nobility. In the stories each subject has to tell, as brush or silver wire moves over the surface of the ground. Teasing out the inherent beauty with focus and patience.

I whisper back.
