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.

    Thanks Mark, not my usual style really… well I think I have two, but at the moment I am more into the fun colourful stuff, then I have the tribal stuff I experiment with some times, this was one of those times.

    Yes LB – my roots extend to Africa. I am South African! I have gone on many safaris… love the wildlife, the scenery, all of it… my life journey has somehow landed me here for the moment.
