I am in constant pursuit of an arresting image or object that can
Transport the viewer to a place of contemplation
I am inspired by symbols and hidden meanings in the otherwise mundane.
I love the idea of capturing a story in one image, all my paintings other than the portraits are puzzles to be solved.
I’m inspired by the line work of Bernie Wrightson and the monstrous hyper realism of Francis Bacon.
I also enjoy images within tarot and the occult, the Latin occultus simply translates as secret or hidden.
I use pencil and charcoal to structure the image then use A mixture of goulash, acrylics and oils.
There is a lot of varnish involved , I like the idea of creating a jewel, with whatever medium i use captured under four layers of varnish... all of my original paintings are framed in teak.
