I hope you enjoy my work – the textures (rough and smooth), the colours (gloomy and bright), the underlying narrative (life is tough but also wonderful).
Only idiots like pretty, sweet things
” Beautiful flowers aren’t a way of avoiding the tougher facts; they are a consolation… the mood that beauty naturally encourages – is a good state of mind to be able to access, given the number of problems we have to face. A taste for pretty art isn’t a denial of the troubles of the world; it shows a wise awareness of the extent of suffering and a concern for bolstering oneself against despair”.
