It's the cliché of ‘it’s for me to know and you to find out’.  I do not fall into any canons of modern art, I do not school myself after the masters of my time, I do not express a social or political cause and I do not pretend to paint for a particular audience.  I do, however, paint for the purest pleasure of creation, for the free flow of subconscious thought, for the need to escape the confines of law and order.  Mostly, my art expresses my way of seeing things.  I paint the essence of my existence within my own sense of timelessness.  It is through this timelessness that I appreciate the imperfect beauty of a straight line, the subtle splash of winter sunlight and the texture of rough canvas.  If I had to describe my work in one sentence, I would say it is pure-raw-genuine soul.  My soul.  What you see is what you get!
  
T
o me, the circle of life begins and ends in the exact same spot.  There is often a furious circular quality evident in my compositions. Many of the organic forms in my works are but mere extensions of the circle.  I use my mediums in thick layers to bring depth and richness to a lifeless surface. My palette includes oils, acrylics, watercolours, pastels, ink, charcoal, and pencil.  Although I enjoy working on canvas and board, I tend to disregard conventional surfaces by using old doors, windows, planks of wood and any other unusual material I may find. These castaway items become a realm of possibilities beneath my brush and elicit an ironic truth about my sense of natural beauty.
