Artist Statement

My current paintings are inspired by unspoken words.

Messages that have been created over many years, in some cases decades, then some words that are more recent.

Words by friends, by family by strangers and some by self. Statements of love, letters of thanks, letters of sadness, political views and sexual references.

In some cases, layers of words, letters, and numbers displayed in a public space for the viewer to read or ignore. Decades of marks, some acted upon, ignored and some provoking a controversial conversation.

A record of silent statement, an image, a thought that may only exist for seconds. Selected words erased, covered up or exposed.

My paintings are created in a similar way, thus leaving the viewer to create their own opinion.

A highly successful sales and leadership career working in a number of different and very competitive industries. Engaging with decision makers at all levels in business and government. Three decades employed by corporations, SME businesses in senior roles and almost twelve years operating as a freelance contractor has equipped me well for all aspects of business. Whether leading and mentoring sales teams, or in a direct sales role I enjoy the challenge to meet and exceed expectations. Making a real and tangible difference in either a team environment or as an individual is an important personal goal I have consistently achieved throughout my career. In all of my business and personal dealings over the years there is one issue that stands out above all others - communication. Excellent communication skills creates trust, helps with mutually beneficial outcomes and above all cements long lasting positive relationships. I strive everyday to communicate effectively with the people I encounter.
