"My work looks at Modern Symbology & Archetypical stories relating to human narrative. My images are not based upon classic symbols but instead on modern iconography. I explore the meanings we can derive from juxtapositions of the figure and symbols. I am an oil painter mainly concerned with the human figure and the way pictorial images have an impact on our lives. "
