“This is my first exhibition: a daunting prospect.
My Mum, Claire Power, was a great artist and painted in such an instinctive way. She encouraged me to be involved in her work – from composition to colours to framing. I was always fascinated to see how she could manipulate what to me seemed quite random shapes and colours into works of art. And that’s been my art education: years of it, without either of us ever being aware if it – until now.
I owe my love of painting to her, and what you see here is the result.”
