My paintings are quirky, light-hearted and colourful, peopled by unreal characters in sometimes strange pursuits. I am inspired by the idea of adding figures to a landscape which then instantly starts to suggest a narrative, whether it's the story I intended or another the viewer decides, it makes no difference as long as it brings a smile.
