Since I live in the city, it is the city that I enjoy painting: lonely streets, laneways, rooftops, bare branches which either protect or threaten.
But these are just the means to another end, that of creating a visual journey for the eye to travel through the world as I see it, snapshots of colour, line and shape. What is the destination of this journey? Everyone’s will be different, mine usually involves contemplation and gratitude.
