 ARTIST STATEMENT

  I want to express and document my thoughts and fellings through my art, some of my work is narrative or perhaps a metaphor - other pieces are simply trying to express the fun and beauty that surrounds me. I have no fixed or disernable style and let the subject of my work lead me to a medium. Above all, I hope my work is appreciated on it's artistic merits; colour, technique, design and secondly on a personal level through subject and statement. In each piece of art I explore challenges in medium and set new goals to create a voice that speaks to the viewer.
