“My paintings are concerned with the emotive qualities of people and situations. In portraiture I seek sympathetic honesty rather than flattery or pretence. Capturing the humanity of the subject is my foremost aim.  

In my paintings more generally I am interested in depicting scenes or moments that exceed everyday perceptions. Individuals may appear with a clarity experienced as much in dreams as in conscious states. I want to absorb the viewer, exploiting perspectives both of time and of space.“
