I sculpt and paint to resolve artistic tension. believe that art emanates from a mythological and ‘magical' wellspring. These themes are apparent in much of my work, sculpture and paintings. Even my landscapes are linked to a spiritual connection to the environment and the human experience. In terms of technique, I plan my work conscientiously, drawing first, and formulating a mental picture of how I will approach the piece. Then I generally apply an underpainting, which is corrected and re-ssessed. Once satisfied, I apply the finalizing glazes.  I use many forms of reference, some photographic, some on-site. Ultimately, a painting takes on its own life.
