"Things aren’t always as they appear to be. At first glance my paintings

may make you smile, whether it be a still life consisting of toys or a chicken

with a knife, the true meaning lies just beneath. Inspired by life, my work is a

visual commentary on world circumstances. With a little humour and a gentle

nudge the message is delivered."
