Artist statement



My works, do not always relate yet they all have an subtle connections, the distorted bodies, unnatural angled hairless heads, large hands is because they are creations from my subconscious and that is how they wish to be exposed.
My paintings are often challenging my ideals pushing me to understand, experience situations I would not normally find myself.
As I work on a painting or sculpture it becomes a story, which unfolds before me, every little detail becomes an important part of that story. The finished painting has more often than not, been painted over another painting that did not work out however it is now an important background research piece of the final piece.
I hope that my art will make the observer smile, laugh or question.
