I love painting. It takes me to the highest places and yet can terrify me. I'm in constant battle with my demons and yet I want to do more, paint more, learn, hone, craft and develop as an artist. For the sheer pleasure of when something works well, when something comes together and becomes what I wanted to show, what I wanted to feel.
I also need painting as a great source of release too. It is wonderfully cathartic.
The things that interest me include mankinds ability to both self destruct and destroy the people and world around them. Let's call it the dark side of human nature. That ability to unleash a fury on people, places and things that no other creature on this planet posesses. On the flipside, the abstract and beauty in nature and the world around us, has always caught my eye and fascinated me. The colour, form and beauty that can be seen everyday, everywhere, if only we bother to open our eyes and look.
