I am a self-trained oil painter. I would describe my style as almost real without being reality, a style I have heard referred to as 'imaginary realism'. |
I get inspiration from many sources, from local scenery to observation of people and their behaviour. I usually attempt to build in some meaning which reflects what is happening in the world around me. This could be political, social, or just humorous.
For all my work I try to include something that would be unlikely to happen in the real world - a twist to deviate slightly from reality.
