Memory saves and brings back to mind scenes of places, people or things which are then processed as the mind perceives them or remembers and it is in that way that new narratives start to take form. My works are the result of a ludic mind where imagination plays its part and recreates characters and places that retain their essence but are given a creative twitch in the process of portrayal.
Walking and visiting diverse places in the country are my great sources for inspiration, the weather changing and the power of the forces of nature create dramatic scenes which then are projected or reflected onto canvases and surfaces which I find are right to express the sentiment of the moment or else a metaphor.
Diverted, sudden changes in the painterly can puzzle the viewer who are Introduced to varied styles.
Picasso was one of those artist that intrigued me as a child I guess because his work was, I perceived as that of someone deliberately twitching his images.
As an art student I was introduced to the work of David Hockney and subsequently became a frequent visitor to Salts Mill where a good number of his paintings were and are being exhibited.
To express creatively I use a range of materials, and they could be: acrylics, oils, watercolours, collage and other mediums which further my artistic practise.
My work is frank and filled with hints of life left to be scrutinised by the general public.
