When words are insufficient it is the role of the painter to step in:

to inform; to provoke; to suggest.

Some art exists to shock and dismay, to perhaps convey the less edifying aspects of life. Other art is created to delight and to celebrate, to give a sense of the wonderment of the world around us.

Artists may legitimately function at either end of these very human experiences but for me the choice is clear.

I want my paintings to be uplifting, life affirming, joyful, and thought provoking. I accept I often fail in this but I also like to think I succeed on occasion.


My hope is that you have a positive reaction when you view my work. We are in this world for such a short time.
