My painting focuses on images of people and places and therefore has a – sometimes unfashionable – narrative element, either drawn from life or as visual quotations from film / photographs / printed media. These are images which have some personal potency often combined in unexpected ways.

I recently travelled round the world – largely by train – and the current paintings catalogue some of the people, places, events, history and cultures encountered on the way.
