“My paintings are often personal,but also universal. Something which might be seemingly straightforward has often other interpretations which I’m oblivious to at the time. All these images come from a culmination of experience - living in London for years, the rooms in the city, the infringement of space and thought, the isolation of such a place, also the atmosphere and fibre and feeling coming from the steeped-in-history of my home Dol Pebyll in Wales”.
