Painting


I like my paintings and drawings to be as accessible to as wide an age range as possible.


I don't see why a painting can't appeal to the art aficionado as well as the uninitiated, the young as well as the old.

My art tries to deal with a number of paradoxes; how to produce images that can be both playful and serious, abstract and figurative, complex yet simple.  
To this end you will find that my images often have a graphic immediacy, rich colours and strong geometric or decorative elements.

In recent years anthropomorphic elements have crept into my work, especially in the monkey and owl series – where each bird or animal takes on human characteristics; with some looking angry or melancholic while others look joyful or mischievous.
