My work is grounded in early writings on philosophy, theology, alchemy and the natural sciences and explores the mutability of 'reality' and language.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
My paintings create a re-imaging of the world by merging the stories, experiences and memories through the medium of paint. Puzzles, mysteries and questions are presented, through a mixing of different languages and view points, to create a place for meditative reflection. The images I produce mix the universal and the personal, the grand and the absurd. They try to communicate something that escapes written word; something that is experienced and felt.
