I work with a number of materials and in various mediums; most of my painting is done on birch panels in either oils or acrylics, my sculptures in wood, some stone and other natural materials.  My themes are those of the world I live in.

 I am working on a series of pieces dealing with birds for a one man show mid-June.  This short 30 second film was done as a break in the studio where I have been working on owls.  An owl is a night bird, nocturnal in behaviour and temperament. They are for us; keepers of secrets as they fly silent and even the deepest secrets surrender themselves to this night witness. They see much of the real world, the imperfections in humans, yet they remain nonjudgmental creatures these.

Only art gives you absolute freedom, it is a visual language, allowing you to say things you can’t in the spoken language, especially the language of a dominant culture – admittedly riding a motorcycle [click for great video re motorcycling - BkgrdComm_pdf (209.9 KB)on ad ] will take you 80% there, but you still are required to follow the ‘rules of the road’ – but doing art can give you complete freedom.
