My artwork is always expressive, either portraying the beauty of the world in which we live or in social and cultural comment. I use lush rich colours on contemporary hand painted digital canvasses. The unique methods I utilise have been developed through a love of experimentation. Embracing the new media of digital painting has replaced my years of traditional paintings as medium of choice.
The visual metaphors and symbolism in my works allow me to convey thoughts and emotions of who we are and our place in the world.
