Working primarily in oils, I love to create vibrant, imaginative paintings that either sweep you up or draw you in, often alternating between grand, complex compositions and smaller, more intimate pieces.
I have a keen interest in depicting narrative in my paintings, whether it's a fleeting moment that's part of a larger story - such as the carefully arranged still-life that has been overrun by gatecrashing wildlife. Or something a little more allegorical and symbolic, with layers of meanings both personal and universal. The latter in the hope of making some sense of this little ramble we're taking through life.
Sometimes serious and sometimes light-hearted (though often both at the same time), my work is tempered by a doggedly persistent hopefulness, resulting in paintings that always end up just a touch surreal.
