"As a child of the 70s, I was raised by TV and movies. This pop culture upbringing shaped my sensibilities as an artist. As a result, my paintings are a carnival of theatrical whimsy. Words are a central feature in my art. I love how a font can tell a story with a single flourish. Vintage lettering and signage gently manipulate us to feel a sense of longing for the past. This is why my entire art career is shrouded in the bleary haze of pop-culture nostalgia. My latest series of paintings is the culmination of all my obsessions. By integrating iconic movie quotes onto roadside signage I am merging pop culture, nostalgia and humour. This blend of elements creates something familiar and yet completely new!"
