Statement

I am interested in old romanticised images, how when they are removed from their original owner a new story and interpretation is invited. I play on this idea, sometimes in a satircal way, inspired by authors such Flann O' Brien. Many of my works have layers and different scenes intertwining to create a new narrative. The tale is open ended and the viewer is invited to imagine and take part in telling the tale.
