My work fall into three categories 1) London / Landmark paintings in acrylic inks and influenced by Piet Mondrian . These paintings are hugely popular and sell extremely well .2 ) Floral paintings - these are full of textures and impressionistic in style . some of my customers now collect these pieces .3 ) Landscapes and seascapes which are uusualy large and impressionistic influenced by Turner .
