Interiors

 

My main speciality is painting views of interiors. These range from private houses to public spaces (mostly historic), and also imaginary interiors. I derive my inspiration from Luigi Premazzi - an Italian artist who lived in St Petersburg in the mid 19th century and is famous for a series of exquisite watercolours of the Hermitage, which were the best records of the place, and subsequently were used by restorers during the restoration of the Hermitage buildings after the Second World War. The feeling of light, texture and space in his paintings is something that greatly inspires me.
