He produced beguiling landscape paintings, brightly coloured and arranged in pleasing geometric patterns. This was the origin of a style that Poul is still pursuing, an approach that has made him one of the UK's most acclaimed landscape painters.

At a young age she was drawn to Byzantine icons – the gold-tinged religious paintings created by Eastern European painters of the dark ages and early medieval periods. She says “They inspire a kind of reverence in the viewer. I find this fascinating and love the stillness in these works”.
