My exploration of pleasure, passion, pain, uncertainty, love, life and that uniquely human longing for fame and immortality, has motivated my quest for storytelling through figurative art.

Sometimes light brings out darkness, sometimes darkness brings out light, but it is my fascination with human interaction, particularly the difference between appearance and reality that animates my work.

Influenced by Western culture, society and the media, my inspiration is driven by a sometimes brutal, but tender approach of expression that brings my art to canvas. Each piece in itself is a self-contained story relating to a greater concept, enabling unfettered thoughts, possibilities and emotions.

Although sometimes provocative, representational painting is my vessel for my love affair with life.
