I am an oil painter. I create paintings as a means of connecting and understanding the seemingly out of control world around me. I strive to create visual metaphors that explore the depths of human depravity and my own distress at the state of the world. I may not fully understand people or why they do the troubling things they do, but turning that which upsets and confuses me into art, transforms human behaviour into something I can digest and wrap my head around. I strive to understand the human condition and be better understood myself.
