Statement:

"When I create, I grant life to the work,
I endeavour to eliminate all that is irrelevant.
Creating in the present and allowing all aspects of self, mind, body, brushes, paint and canvas to be a vehicle and conduit to the creative process.

All art could be called, a Self-Portrait. However, from the moment the work is completed, the audience or the viewer takes the artwork to another level; contributing to the work and adding their own memories, considerations and imagination.”

“It’s about you.”
Art that communicates to the viewer It is nothing to do with me.
