Regular visitors to art exhibitions may have noticed the current practice whereby artists provide a written statement explaining the rationale/philosophy behind their work. Although I respect this, I prefer to let viewers make their own interpretation. There are no hidden messages. My main aims are to create a world from my imagination, images and objects that are intriguing to the eye; and to transcend the barrier between ‘fine’ art and design/illustration.
Instead, visitors to my website might be interested in a list of some of the inspiration behind the work:
