Exploration and Development
The period of 1990-2000 can be characterized as a period of further elaboration of my artistic subjects. Important for me was being enabled to interrupt my teaching job to paint on a full-time basis and in doing so to concentrate more fully on developing my technical skills and the expansion of my imagination.
Research into the possibilities of the fine art technique is perhaps best seen in the variety of form and colour evident in the work of this period. No effort was spared in trying out new techniques in the representation of varied textures. Variegated colour combinations and contrasts were tried regularly to unravel and control their secrets.
