“I have been fascinated by the history and painting techniques of past eras. I use this knowledge as a starting point to explore compositions which are not straight imitations of older styles but incorporate contemporary elements as well. I feel my art is in part concentrated in realism with a substantial contemporary influence. I have used images of old statues and architecture and incorporated them into modern settings. I have rendered historical figures; some prime ministers, famous personalities, and images from the cinema, fashion and the theatre.”
