"I'm obsessed with colourful textile design, I paint interpretations of my favourite fabrics in the background of my contemporary still life paintings. I particularly love Suzani inspired designs at the moment which remind me of my travels and allow my paintings to take you to another place. Using a palette knife I stroke indulgent layers of oil paint to capture the life and colour of cut flowers. It becomes a race before their inevitable fall."
