I work traditionally in watercolour, acrylic and mixed media.
I have worked with Russian dancers at the Vaganova Ballet Academy, and in the Mariinsky and Mikhailovsky Theatres, drawing and painting dancers in rehearsal. I also paint musicians as I love music.
I am now exploring and extending my means of expression of emotion through colour, especially with musical notation.
Drawing is a basic discipline which I practise regularly, particularly with studies from the object and moving figures.
