ARTIST STATEMENT

My influences are many - Renaissance and Baroque painting; film noir; theatre; music; mythology - but at the root is identity and how that is presented and changed by life’s random happenings.   No matter what the ostensible subject, my work is all prompted by this interest   This is linked with a strong belief in the painting process, during which I “find” my characters and their relationships.   Finally, the viewer’s interpretation of the final image completes the sequence.
