"Painting became part of my life again following a personal crisis that turned my world upside down. It was a long dark soul of the night thing. Think Gerald Scarf has a long lunch with Ralph Steadman and you get some way down that hole.

I used inks and acrylic and lots of rage and never showed anyone my monsters.

Over the last twelve years I have come back again and again to the canvas, slowly finding my pace with pigments and textures. I paint abstracts in mixed media including: acrylic, plant powders and oils. Most of my work is full of energy and movement. My inspiration is natural landscapes, urban decay and all the amazing worlds you can see if you look closely at things.

I feel that my paintings say something about the joy of painting as an expressive act and for that very reason alone cause us to think not only about the darkness that we carry with us, but also the colour, the brightness, the light, and how the contrast of these makes us human.
