I’m obsessed with moving paint. The texture and colour, the way it moves under the knife I find hypnotic. The paint has a life of it’s own it seems and I’m just pushing it to where it belongs. And in contrast sometimes against where it wants to go.

When I started out it was just to pass the time after an accident kept me from the surf, but it quickly turned into something much more important for me. I guess I’m happiest when I’m creating something and what I started to create was a little different than what I had expected.

I seem to paint from the gut and what started to come out was a little deeper. There tends to be a subject matter to most of my paintings. Whether it be a political issue or a personal feeling towards something, it all spills out onto the Canvas.
