Working primarily in oils, I 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 love 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. Usually 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 persistent hopefulness, resulting in paintings that always end up just a touch surreal.
