I have been fascinated by the history and painting techniques of past eras. I use this knowledge as a starting point to explore compositions which are not straight imitations of older styles but incorporate contemporary elements as well. My art is rooted in realism with a notable contemporary influence and the influence of illustration. I have used images of statues and architecture. I have rendered historical figures; some prime ministers, famous personalities, and images from the cinema and theatre. Some of my work deals with socially relevant themes.
