Statement

Biography

My work stems from my interest in the human condition. It  focuses on the theme of a personal internal journey undertaken through the medium of paint on a daily basis in my studio.

While the work opens up possibilities of expression for me as the artist, the hope is that the viewer, on seeing the work for the first time will experience the creative energy involved in the making and will reach an understanding of the internal dialogue, which has occurred.
