About her still life paintings:
“I love the beauty of such simple things as a few pieces of fruit adorned with silk or satin. I enjoy the control that still life offers. By arranging, rearranging and adjusting the fruit, fabric and light, I can work out my design just the way I want. Then I am free to play with colour, tone and brush strokes. I hope to offer the viewer a glimpse of the great beauty that surrounds us in the everyday.”
