My current paintings show my fascination with visual space. Doing something that looks three-dimensional on a two dimensional surface is always an exercise in magic and illusion. I like to use humour, visual and verbal puns, changes in scale, odd juxtapositions, reflections and mirror images to play with ideas.

Typically my paintings start with a visual image that grabs me and won’t let go until I get it down. I dream about it. Sometimes it feels like I am filling in the pieces of a complex jigsaw puzzle. Sometimes it is like following breadcrumbs through the forest. My paintings have been called “quirky” and “playful”. I hope you enjoy them.
