Artist's Statement

  Found imagery has been an inspiration to me since my teenage days when I would decorate my room with magazine clippings.  I began using these clippings as a source for my paintings while still at school.  Today I continue this practice also using old family photographs, sketches I've made from films, and imagined scenes as sources for my paintings.  There is no one common theme throughout my work, I simply paint subjects that interest me.  The pleasure that I get from these images is what I wish to convey with each painting.
