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.
