My recent work is focused on still life - using traditional methods of painting in oils. Familiar objects are grouped together, sitting quietly in their allotted space. In isolating a few objects at a time, it is possible to scrutinize them in the same way one might look at a face in portraiture. I am interested in more than the simple likeness of things - I want to capture an integrity - a being there.
I concentrate on creating a particular atmosphere around a subject, be it a cityscape or a still life - it is a stillness or contemplative quality that inspires me.
