Painting is a way of self-discovery and exploration of the (inner) world.  My process is reminiscent of journal-keeping and nods at the method of stream of consciousness and a non-linear view of the world.  I am an incessant collector of images and paint in order to explore what interests me about the subject in the first place. The human condition is central and the seemingly mundane and momentary are significant. Themes that emerge are interpersonal relations, nature versus nurture, reality and fiction, and the importance of paying attention. The extraordinary manifests itself in the most ordinary.
