Has your art matured with you?
Experience is the best teacher of all. It has taught me that my whole self, emotions and thoughts, are ‘in’ my work. I think that’s what makes art powerful and reaches out to others. I wouldn’t like to be judged on any particular painting as it has taken me a lifetime of work.
Do you have a favourite piece of yours?
All of my art is my favourite! The next painting is always the best and very exciting. It’s a constant feeling of loving the piece I just finished and really loving the painting I haven’t yet started or maybe that I’m working on.
How quickly do you work?
I work slowly although I think at top speed, I can’t paint fast. Each painting can take 3 to 4 months to complete and that doesn’t include the preparation.
How do you feel when you work?
I am totally relaxed when working. Radio and audio books are wonderful company. There are many phone disruptions but my biggest distraction is the fridge.
