Artist Statement

I'm a physically disabled contemporary painter. I use this and the subject of neglect, isolation, pain, despair and infuse it into a series of works called "hidden monster". It is a long slow build, which when I'm happy with it, will hopefully one day have its own show. My other works are painted in a new visual language that deals with non representational ways of describing various subjects. I hope one day, I will be able to share this work in the wider art appreciating world.
