> Artist Statement

I like to work on a BIG IDEA which is made up of many parts.

I am a painter but I like to push the boundaries of painting.

I always start small and work towards the larger scale.

I like to think that my work is about giving.

My work is about being positive.

I like to involve people, especially the general public, within my work so that they often form an intrinsic and vital element to a finished piece.

I don’t like to repeat specific ideas or subjects but all my work is connected. One piece has always led on to the next in a continual artistic exploration.

Trying the new, both in terms of my own artists exploration and new technologies is extremely important to me and interpreting that in my work, vital.

I really dislike the belief that every piece of art work requires an explanation. If most people do not get it, then I believe you have failed as a visual artist
