Kimono Paintings

The kimono is a predominant motif to my work.  Each kimono is unique and a work of art in itself, so painting one is much like painting a portrait.  I enjoy the challenges that the patterns and textures offer me. The woodcuts of the Japanese Ukiyo-e have  inspired my use of composition and love of pattern. Complex colour themes have become an important part of my work, as I look for ever more dramatic ways to paint.
