‘Window’ Series  - The juxtaposition of 'shop windows' in the red light district, the staid physical facades of church steeples, create a dramatic back drop for the fairy light lit canals which make up the magic patchwork of Amsterdam after dark. I have looked at the work of Dutch artists Johannes Vermeer 1632-1676 and Pieter de Hooch 1629-1684.

I also engage with the work of German artists Otto Dix 1891-1969, George Grosz 1893-1959,
Spanish artist Pablo Picasso 1881-1973 and British artist/illustrator Aubrey Beardsley 1872-1898. These artists, especially Dix and Grosz, who were very much influenced by WW2, looked at the macabre and the sometimes seedier side of life around them.
