The focus of this body of portraits is on the direct gaze.

Initially these figures appear melancholic, but on closer inspection we ask ourselves are we the viewer or is it us that is being viewed, or indeed scrutinised.

The stares are sometimes intense, some look through you with ambivalence, some with concern or pity. Minimal landscapes behind the sitters allude to a changing terrain or climate.

The exhibition 'Paintings for Pu' is named after my cat Pupu.

It was after having him I began to see the connections between different life forms.

This has inspired me to think about the cycle of life in nature, the communication between living beings and the psychological reactions to this topic in a contemporary context. These paintings focus on the concept of the loop in ecology, and the confusion of spirits, and the natural decaying of physical bodies

For me creating - The colours are as words, and painting is like making music and magic.

I want to excite the viewer and my self with creative expression - a sky full of passion, and a land full of opportunity; mountains of mystic splendour for adventure and torrential rivers. It is in creating that is important, not the canvas, until the moment it is finished and embodies mind, spirit - a being, doing.
