To paint is my way of analysing and understanding the world. My themes are always derived from everyday experiences and impressions. In my paintings I explore topics like movement, energy, contrast and the mystery of emotions. I am interested in how they interconnect into body language as the true expression of the individual.

Last summer, while I was still painting Twiggie, photographer, data journalist and elephant aficionado Kristina Kashtanova sent me a Facebook request to interview me about the Elephant Parade. I invited her to come meet Twiggie in intu‘s head office where I had set up my temporary studio. She’s very much into photography too, so we had an impromptu photo shoot, which left me with a pile of awesome photos of me working on the elephant!

In November she set out to write her article for a journalism study she’s doing at the moment. For it she interviewed me, Keith Siddle, who painted Twiggie’s boyfriend the Pyra-phant, and my very talented friend Karen Hollis, who painted the beautiful Lily Pepper.
