Artist Statement

Painting and drawing is my passion. I work fast, one piece of work going through many transitional stages and forms, drawn from my observation drawings.


Traditionally my sketch books were the starting point for my bold oil paintings and mixed media pieces, rich in colour and movement. However with the introduction of my iphone as my electronic sketchbook, I find myself looking at my subject matter with new eyes. Over the last 12 months my imagery, has become more illustrative and has taken on a narrative quality. The portraits attempt to tell a story about the people, the locations or the situations I observe as I draw.
