As I grow older I continue to take painting more seriously. I aim to communicate my view of the world in a style that incorporates traditional and modern painting. I hope to help build the future of painting, but true art takes time so I am constantly thinking about my work and the desired visual effect. Ideas and inspiration come from all aspects of daily life; a conversation overheard, a colour or animal noticed while walking. The true challenge for me, like all artists, is to be satisfied with my own work.
