Self PortraitIn my painting I like to combine both landscape and figures in a constructed space of my imagination; suggesting ideas about travel and journeys. I use a visual language derived from the sketchbook drawings the paintings are based upon, and they often feel like a tentative proposition rather than a full blown statement.

Many of the paintings are about the experience of travelling or journeying. The dislocation of the people depicted, both from themselves and the environment around, suggests questions about their destination and purpose.
