My paintings capture the world around me at specific moments in time.
Internal interpretation of external observation.
Still life, the animate and inanimate, with human form and personality unveiled.
I indicate position and relationship by placement and arrangement within my paintings. I love to collect vintage objects and these are often used as 'characters' in my works.
My professional background is in graphic design.
