My personal painting projects feature two basic themes. They are, first and foremost, simply an expression of the pleasure of painting. I enjoy representing light, texture, and the illusion of space on a two dimensional surface. I’ve explored landscape, architecture, and character design. The over-arching project is towards “world building”, which you can also see emerging in some of my parallel drawing projects. I’ve recently begun to look at Street Art inspired typo/graphic illustrations which are moving more towards flat areas of colour, semi-abstraction, and the underlying geometry of composition.
