Statement

My work is about how places define us.

Where we come from and choose to be inhabits us because memories are real . I deal in words and pictures, words are my ciphers to imagination and memory, pictures come later. Artists can't make a better world but we can show what it looks like. So I am compelled to create work about seeing beauty in imperfection and living life to the full. We have to believe in regeneration.

Now is yesterdays future.
My council house paintings are an exorcism of who I was. My Painting Garden, about whom I wish to become. Moving forward is the important thing.
