The Palette

I love to create exciting palettes! The spirit of playfulness is paramount. Most of my palettes are inspired by the world around me, the wondrous variety of colours found in nature, the art and architecture seen during my travels to Islamic lands, but also beautiful objects seen in museums and exhibitions, films and paintings. Colours have personalities that adapt to their surroundings so colour choices need to remain fluid until the final brushstroke. In moments of heightened awareness, palettes arise spontaneously. Before applying paint, I like to try out a variety of different trial palettes.

Blue-greens or green-blues, ochre-golds or gold-ochres? Treasures from faraway places invite still-life moments and visions of vibrant and luminous palettes.
