I don’t have an overriding theme or style which I use or can be used to identify my work. I work mainly from photos found in adverts, newspapers, books or screen grabs from the internet or off the telly.
I see an image and respond to it, wanting to employ it in a painting or base a painting on a particular image that evokes a thought or feeling. A photograph is a representation of a person or event, a painting gives more the feeling of a body or event taking place in space even if it is completely imaginary.

Mexican and Tibetan iconography meet on a 2D surface. The artist has mingled cultural beliefs with a universal archetype to signify the vibrancy and beauty of human mortality in a single small but significant piece of graphic artwork rendered in a multiplicity of mediums for the observer to impute their own interpretation of the image presented.
