“My art is primarily about communication. One of the great joys of making art is making connections with other people through it, often by finding meaning in the work that is both unintended and yet surprisingly insightful. When creating art my ultimate goal is to produce works that I hope will resonate deeply with the viewer and elicit an emotional response which will encourage reflection and open dialogue and understanding between people.
I am continually attempting to push boundaries in my art, delving into subjects and ideas that take me out of my comfort zone. Self portraits are the most personal, challenging and intimidating artworks I feel I can do. Through these and other figurative studies I strive to express something universal in the personal.
A heartfelt thank you to all who find their way here. You are welcome to stay for a chat and share thoughts and ideas over a cup of tea.”
