I often think the night is more alive and more richly coloured than the day.” Van Gogh

I like the night. I paint dark things in the dark that can barely be seen. And storms full of rage and rain. I am interested in what happens as the light changes, especially as it approaches darkness, so I mix my paints with reflective materials such as glass, glitter and mica. Over the years I have learned how to foil with metal, and gild with copper, silver and gold leaf.
