I have been painting and drawing all my life but became enamoured by my dog Edie in 2001 and began painting dogs. I am interested in the emotional attachments we form with them and how to somehow transfer these immense feelings into a painting. I attempt to retain a freedom of mark to give a visual vitality, and to portray emotion and love through light. The dog looks down on us from the wall, as we usually look down on them at our feet. My paintings hang on the walls of many houses around the world as far as Australia and the USA. I accept commissions.
