Painter, photographer, writer & filmmaker with an eclectic and nomadic artistic career spanning over 20 years and almost as many relocations, I sometimes find my best work comes from ‘unlearning‘ all my formal training and previous successes and being open to finding inspiration in the most unlikely of places.
The aim of my most recent work is to try capture that elusive feeling of spontaneity, creativity and pure joyful childish abandon of ‘play,’ while paying homage to some of my favourite bygone eras of film, painting and photography
