"Painting has been something of an obsession since I was a child. Making images, that have potential to inspire the imagination, from little more than amorphous gunk seems endlessly fascinating. Flowers are an ongoing passion. I have an allotment where I grow plenty of roses, which often figure in my still life paintings."
