Things aren’t always as they appear to be. At first glance my paintings may
make you smile but the true meaning lies just beneath.
I am a classically trained artist inspired by present day life. Through the medium
of oil painting, I create narrative pieces that explore the delicate balance between
humans and animals. Using a juxtaposition of old master style and current global
issues, my work is a visual commentary on world circumstances. With a little humour
and a gentle nudge, the message is delivered.
