Statement:

Artist’s Reflection

Over the years, I have become more intensely aware of the spiritual content of painting. I have found that meaning in art is inescapable no matter how neutral the subject matter seems to be. A work of art is conceived and made by a human being, and this being so it embodies human values, hopes, aspirations and fears. It was for this reason that I began to realise that the way I work mattered.  Meaning-rich landscape, Still Life, portrait, city scenes, all attracted my attention and occupied my canvases. However, the spiritual implications of my work have also found an explicit form in Christian imagery.
