“In painting my job is to be to peel away the never ending layers that describe us. Like the archaeologist, I use hard won skills. But what I uncover has been there waiting – forever.
I’ve been sharpening my skills by drawing, printmaking, and painting, just about every day. I try to push further into the unknown each time I work, although I eventually run back to safe centre – yet already relishing the thought of the next sortie. There is a multitude of paintings still clamouring to be done. Nearly all my work is about relationships. With my beleaguered self , between persons, with the larger social, and natural environment, or perhaps with a god or two.”
