My sketches are done insitu whilst traveling. The rotring never leaving my side. Any liquid at hand becomes paint. Anything from coffee to red wine doubles up as material. Here I did the castle in Sirmione, Lombardy with cherry juice & ink.

This painting was done on commision and mainly consists of layered oils on canvas, but is essentially mixed media, with ink and acrylic also utilised at the begining.

"The veggie vendor" Acrylic on canvas The markets of Malaga are a great inspiration & I always wish that one could bottle the vibe & take it home with you.

"Vespa"Acrylic on canvas I think the Mediterranean passion for life is so closely tied up with this classic little iron horse, that one could never separate the two… and indeed, it is nothing common to see young Spanish lads do wheelies on their Vespas to impress girls! Everyone has one and it is rather astonishing to see exactly how much matter they manage to fit onto it! Apparently, in the old days, one could see up to and including and entire family with kids & the works on one Vespa! Beach babes balance their body-boards and beach gear (often also including umbrellas) at their feet and go around the umteen round-abouts with ease, even holding a coke in one hand sometimes! All this regardless of the fact that the street & highway design is decidedly Gaudi-esque… if there is such a thing (yet) ! Anyway… regardless of serpentine roads and more round-abouts per square mile than all the crop sircles in Europe put together, one has to agree: Viva Espagna and… Viva la Vespa!

"Old Man in Frigliana" This old man was taking prickly pears and eggs somewhere… his bright yellow hat inspired this painting.

"Gossip" Acrylic on Canvass These two ladies were chatting away in a street in Frigliana one day… Whether or not they were actually gossiping, escaped me, but what didn’t escape me – or anyone else who ever walks down the street there- is how old Spanish ladies can have entire conversations, (seemingly with more than one person) by shrieking at the top of their voices across alleys, from one open kitchen window to the next, around a corner & down a street, without actually having to make eye contact, or stand at the window for that matter. Gotta love them! :-)

My paintings are inspired by photographs taken on travels & by my everyday life. The sun & passion of Andalucia is what draws me into these short moments of beauty. I aim to portray simple peaceful contentment. I use high quality acrylic from Holland on canvas. "Carmen, girl from Frigliana" I find it beautiful that both young and old Spanish women still use their fans. Be it in self-defense against the gruelling Andaluccian heat, or in honour of patriotism, they all fan away happily in summer. Here, a young woman is captured at a cafe in Frigliana with a gorgeous red version of the age old design.
