In the centre the symbol of the cross on a chain underwater surrounded by creatures of the sea. Is the cross sinking or floating? The creatures and sea, would they be here still if the cross where not here? Questions, is there a sure answer particularly in today's changing world environment how relevant are the messages represented in the cross?

I have been painting from a young age. It is a way of expressing myself. 

I have over the years experimented with a variety of styles but more recently I have tried to use contrasting strong colours to add to the impact and energy of my painting.

I can draw and paint from life but do not always choose to. I try to look inside myself to express an experience or thoughts I have had. On top of the colours this often includes symbols, figures and words.

I hope you enjoy the works!
