Statement:

My philosophy in painting is making my works as decorative as I can to expose drawing (line) and use the shapes in a surrealistic way. I call this decorative style FANTASY SURREALISM- this is my style. I am a storyteller creating my own theatre using the puppets on the stage (on canvas). I am using symbols of real things but I am not a Symbolist and I am not a Realist because I am placing these symbols in unreal places. I work strongly with the composition and I also use a combination of vibrant colours, gold/silver leaves and glazing.  I like to give people the opportunity to experience happiness whilst viewing my works. I would like to be an easily recognised artist who is different and unique to others. This is my credo in art.
