Q: How are you inspired to create the powerful and compelling art you are known for?
A: A story. Story always comes first.
It is never for decorative purposes or to simply paint something that is beautiful.
History plays a huge role in my art, as does the physiological behaviour of the human species. When I do research for a project, I always discover interesting facts and stories that relate to me. Stories of power particularly intrigue me and I try to portray this in my paintings which include images that evoke an emotional response from the viewer.
