"The simple everyday becomes transformed in my world.
I see things differently, that’s what I want to show. I want to cause the viewer to pause and reflect. To consider that there may be another way to look at something. I want to capture a memory, to evoke the feelings we have when we remember those experiences or moments in life. To use colour to create fun, a good feeling.
For some, I start with a portrait or a scene of buildings. I imagine what it would look like in my world - to see the beneath which is the universal feelings that it creates, - the beyond is my vision, my world of design, my play with how things sit in gravity and bold colour.
I want the viewer to stop and take another look. To laugh, or smile and say I have been there, where is that? It is anywhere you want it to be. It is whomever it reminds you of. The greatest joy comes from people reacting with a smile, a laugh, saying it make them feel good".
