"What I like about ancient Roman frescos is that it was a way of bringing the outside into a home. Some of the villas had subterranean rooms or rooms without windows, so frescos of the gardens were painted on the walls, making it seem like you were looking at a view outside. I hope that my paintings do something similar, providing an idyllic glimpse of summer in your house."

"I like the intensity. Sometimes I take it further and it becomes an immense pattern. I enjoy that side of my painting; as well as creating space with hedges and the lines of fields, there is a flattening down of the composition."

"During the turmoil of lockdown, I naturally started introducing a darker background. I have always loved the Dutch Masters' still life paintings of flowers and how the black brings out the intense colour of the arrangements.
A darker background was used sometimes in Roman fresco painting to the same effect, especially in House of the Mysteries where you find black borders and rich, red colours,"
