"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that those in possession of a blank wall, must be in want of a good painting"

Please have a look in the new childrens gallery, its a new style for me. I am looking forward to seeing the reaction.

My inspiration comes from many quarters but I am primarily influenced by my children, the whimsical and the quirky and the idea of innocence.

My figures are caught in the moment, they are having fun -sometimes good and wholesome, sometimes slightly mischievous! They have no hidden agendas, they don't want to change the world, they simply want to express their joy and a zest for life.

Surely, there are times when we don't need to be confronted. We simply need to be reminded that joy and innocence still reside in this world.

All paintings are Acrylic on canvas.
