The animal world holds for us all a dichotomy; the hidden inner being, and the familiar outer shell.

Through art there exists a chance of using colour; shape and texture to reveal the inner soul and thus present the complete being.

Art seeks not the ordinary, but the exceptional. With the moment just past hinted at, and the next instant implied.

Our need for recognition of nature and the truth drives man's creation in all areas, and art in particular. Art looks to place before us visions for us to consider.

My work aspires to this, and my Somerset countryside gives me all the inspiration I could ever need.
