In this painting, the first of the series called “The Cold Room”, the slaughter of people is symbolized by animals similarly slaughtered and hung with a butcher’s hook. Although I am […]

In this oil and acrylic painting, the pig’s head with its identity undisclosed and suspended by a butcher’s hook, symbolizes the victim.

In my dreams I can fly, and when I think I’m about to fall, I stretch my wings so wide that I am suspended high into the air – just like Jonathon Livingston Seagull. You will see that I have a passion for anything that whizzes past me in flight. I wonder what it is […]
Are you familiar with the silly little poem “The Owl And The Pussycat” by Edward Lear? Here’s the first verse: The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea In a beautiful pea-green boat, They took some honey, and plenty of money, Wrapped up in a five-pound note. The Owl looked up to the stars above, And sang […]
