I am inspired by the master Dutch painters who added nests, birds, butterflies and bugs to many of their compositions. Most of you know that birds are used in the majority of my still life paintings, but a monkey was a stretch for me!

I have always been a firm believer in taking calculated ‘risks’ in life and art. It was time for me to step outside of my own artistic comfort zone and I am pleased with the results. In fact, now I have many other new ideas swirling around in my head – and that’s how it all works! We can’t help but grow from our challenges and discomfort.
