SILK PORTRAITS
The most sensual medium..

"Having originally started painting in oil in the 1980s, I soon fell in love with painting on silk: Painting portraits on silk, the most sensual medium for a sensual subject.

Imagine the colour dancing on silk as you paint, seemingly having a life of its own. While oil painting is forgiving as you can correct it, painting on silk needs a certain amount of control and knowhow how to place the paint onto the silk."
