I have been interested in art as far back as I can remember. Over the years I have come to appreciate that there is beauty everywhere and often in what seem to be very ordinary things to the casual observer. In fact I am of the conviction that "art" plays a vital role in everyday life and is arguably the most important tool for instant communication of information. The old saying that:"a picture is worth a thousand words" is a worthy motto.

I particularly love art that tells a story. I have fond memories of doodling pictures for my children when they were very young and telling a bit of a tale at at the same time. I then I began to appreciate the immense power of art. So, I feel that all my paintings tell a story.

Thank you for visiting my gallery and I hope you enjoy the paintings as well as their associated stories.
