Many people ask me what goes through my mind when I paint…

This question has come to haunt me as it has a massive bearing upon the work that I create. I deal with imaginative and spiritual subjects based on oriental practices of soul searching. The images I use are prominently personal, often arriving as visions through deep meditation and inner exploration. I enjoy meditation because of this, it allows me to tap into hidden reservoirs of intuition.

But I live in the real world, where I want to share my visions with others. Naturally, I have to be comfortable with what I exhibit. I have my own standards of what I feel is appropriate, and indeed, it is important to me how the paintings will be experienced by you.
