  • Biography

    I am motivated to paint by the need to express my thoughts and imagination.

    I have a strong desire to bring people into my storytelling. The figures, creatures and visual references often reflect a wide range of curiosities and references and intrigues. They come from a diverse range of sources that include fragments and abstractions from the world of mythologies, the kabbala, poetry, literature, popular culture, current affairs, personal memory and daily rituals.

    The works become a metaphorical place to find a haven and safe place to roam from the harsh realities and complications of the modern world, the shadow of which is still often discernible. This makes for a strangely compelling cocktail of innocence, whimsy, longing and menace.

    My work is also about hopefully gaining knowledge, about experimentation and about the skills of painting and mark marking
