‘When the viewer looks at my work they are presented with many intertwining and interacting forms. These forms make up scenes and imaginary beings, which are part of an internal world that I have created. Many people have their television world, I have decided, through painting to create my own world. All these scenes originate from deep within my mind. I am inspired by 'tribal designs' from all over our globe, ancient texts, microcosm, macrocosm, and occult symbolism. I try to create something mysterious, provocative, and intriguing out of the simplicity of these forms, as well as displaying a story for the viewer to decipher for themselves.’
