Inspiration & Influence

My work is always about life, harmony & balance but often explores the fine line between that and death. I love to contradict and put opposing factors together, innocence with decay, symbolism and religion, nature and war -etc.. I want to present elements that force a dialogue between all the elements and make the viewer think about their connections. It all links.


I'm driven to push, as artists we are never content to stay stagnant. I often dislike looking back at older work and never think its good enough - I go through phases with other artists, like Bacon, Hockney, Hirst, I like to see these every now and again to keep me on my toes and open my mind.Often a new piece is as a result of one before it.
