ARTIST STATEMENT​

All my life I’ve been fascinated by urban environments.

That’s what led me into local government.

Now as I’ve returned to my original passion of painting.

I record and interpret the changing face of city environments – the streets, the parks, the buildings and most importantly, the people of our urban centres.
