'My work is about the absurdity, pain and joy of existence. Working mainly in acrylic, I explore the ways in which the past echoes around us and how life leaves its marks upon us. I am fascinated by the push-pull tension of the struggle between dark and light and use bold colours and unusual compositions to express both small delights and inner conflict.'

'Our bodies are vessels containing the past, living the present, holding a promise for the future. When the past is toxic, every other part becomes infected. The only cure is to purge the poison and hope we don’t destroy ourselves in the process.'
'We have to cut ourselves open and dig deep until we find the sore place. Whatever we find there we must expose to the light so that we can examine it then creatively and honestly explore and express what we have found.'
