"I don’t often set out to convey a particular idea. I like to let the image develop in a creative way and my ideas about the piece evolve as I work. Hopefully the artworks can stand on their own without much explanation and the viewer can enjoy applying their own interpretations to my work.
Having said that, recurring themes of migration, the cycle of life and the passing of time seem to often find their way into my drawings, paintings and sculptures."
