While meditation is a major 
influence upon my paintings, 
music is a more immediate 
source of inspiration.They've 
all painted more pictures in 
my mind than me. I combine 
music with personal feelings 
and friendships. Sometimes it 
saturates each painting with 
religiosity and symbolism; the 
combination of colours juxta-
positioned with subjects, 
when viewed as a series can 
spark off a thought along 
spiritual lines. I'm aiming at 
developing this to a greater and
deeper intensity.
