My day begins with the demands of my young family for early
morning attention, but once they are off to school, I go straight
to work. I own a gallery near my home, which has a spacious
and well lit attic, and this provides the perfect location
for my studio. I find myself unable to function without a
cup of coffee and a nice substantial breakfast, and I have
this when I arrive as I open the mail and start to formulate
my plans for the day. As anyone who is familiar with my work
will know, I tend to paint each individual picture with a
very specific palette, employing a range of shades of one
dominant colour. Once I know what I am working on, I prepare
my palette carefully as I believe the precise shades I work
with are integral to the character of the finished composition.
Then (after another coffee Iím afraid!) I begin to paint,
and tend to work flat out until around 5pm.
