I create pictures to tell a story of our time, both in poetry and in paint, of life as we perceive it but with a gentle twist that reflects on some of the little absurdities and ironies of the human condition. Sometimes a little quirky and sometimes quietly subversive, there is a degree of simplicity, perhaps naivety to the work.
Do artists need words? Do poems need illustration? Painters have always been inspired by words – whether classical myths, biblical narratives, or phrases encountered in novels or poems. These just happen to be my words, observations on life in scenes presented back to the viewer with a subtle and sometimes humorous, sardonic or even satirical hue.
