I am intrigued by the confused and fluid nature of memories and often present these as a complex juxtaposition of conflicting vignettes. They need to be read like the chapters of a story, but unlike a book, there is no particular order. The viewer must decide the sequence which in turn results in a complex, interactive experience.


The drawings, either complete or sometimes just a detail, become the basis for my paintings. I tend to resist contemporary movements, preferring instead to explore my own thoughts about what is happening in the world around me. And for this reason have always: swum against the tide.
