Welcome to my Studio Blog

Take a peek into my studio and See what inspires me to create my paintings and what’s been happening in my studio and on my travels.

I love to travel, see new places and meet new people. I love to create bold colourful paintings, many of them based on my wonderful travels.

Travel Update Provence/Cote Dazur April 2017 and My Basel WIP #8,9 Update

Hi Everyone, its been a while since I made a post on my painting blog. I was away on a mini vacation over Easter and took a few extra days.  Had a great trip to Provence-Cote D'azur.  We stayed in Sanary sur Mer, at the beautiful Hostellerie Farandole Hotel.  We did lots of day trip to Bandol, Cassis, Sanary, Castellet, Bormes les Mimosas (which I fell in love with) and a visit to St. Tropez.  Took tons of pics and came back with a ton of inspiration!


Some Pics of Our Recent Trip:
