Although most of my work is based on imagination and emotion, reality is always a starting point for me. I believe my work is an emotional response to the people I meet, places I visit and the stories/ poems I read. As I walk about, I normally carry a small sketchbook and a camera to record ideas, drawings and references. I then take them to the studio and develop the ideas and images into paintings or prints. All my paintings and prints are hugely inspired by the ever-changing landscape around me, and is record of my observation in the everyday life.
