My paintings are an exploration and expression of my personal emotions, interpersonal relationships and recollections of childhood; the human condition; and also influenced by my travel experiences and their influences on my senses as well as inspiration drawn from current fashion and pop culture.

My aim is to represent my world and express, with my chosen media the emotional moments, quirky twists and often humorous encounters of life.

    Amazingly beautiful, gloriously flowing ad infinitum. I love it.

  • Thanks Candor and Damo… it’s been a long time in the making. One of those paintings when you just have to stop, because as you said Candor, it has a sense of ininitum… so no beginning, no end. Probably a random stroke of luck I got this far ; )

    i am really drawn to this Carmen, for me it has the feel of different timbers and peep holes, i can imagine little birds might be nesting in those dark caverns.

  • Thanks girlfriend! I think there’s a lot hiding in those caverns too, I don’t even want to think about it at the moment… hiho hiho it’s off to paint i go. Will check in later : )

    First thought on seeing it, I don’t know why, was that it looked ‘Spanish’. Very impressive.
