Paints in acrylics and oils, on canvas and board. Inspired by Rick Amor, Mark Tansey, Nicholas Harding, Robert Hannaford, Paco Pomet and many others.
Most of my paintings are desert landscapes, in which isolated figures interact with enigmatic ruins and structures. I’m interested in how people respond to what they cannot understand, or are unprepared for. Other concerns include environmentalism (the giant eco light globes) and the long-running military interventions in the Middle East.
