"Art is not what you see but what you make others see' - Edgar Degas

Many great artists create profound work with underlying messages designed to provoke or challenge. Some push artistic boundaries whilst others make political or social statements. Because I understand that I am incapable of these things I know that I will never be a great artist.

My work seeks to celebrate rather than to conflict with our perception of what is beautiful art. I try to create work that will happily hang in a private space. Our homes are our castles and I do not want to cause any disquiet by introducing ideological challenge within, or more appropriately, onto your walls..

To me mankind, especially in the female form is magical and mesmerising. I love people. I paint what I love and hope that you love what I paint.

In my art I am forever chasing beauty.
