Take a ninety year old woman to see the Mona Lisa. She will look at the portrait’s face and she will say, This woman’s eyes say, ‘I know life’. And then, as we must, we will turn to the portrait’s gaze and there to rest, forever beguiled by the knowing eyes. The Mona Lisa’s eyes, her self, her ‘I’ is so alive and so present it has burned its way down through the ages, searing the retinas of billions of viewers, to each in turn saying, ‘I know’.

Take a ninety year old woman to see the Mona Lisa.
She will look at the portrait’s face and she will say,
This woman’s eyes say, ‘I know life’.
And then, as we must, we will turn to the portrait’s gaze and there to rest, forever beguiled by the knowing eyes.

The Mona Lisa’s eyes, her self, her ‘I’ is so alive and so present it has burned its way down through the ages, searing the retinas of billions of viewers, to each in turn saying,
‘I know’.

Something real.
Something forgotten.

And in its place is left a look of absence.

The perfect crime today
Bloodless and stain free
Aim for the youngest
Right through the heart

For there is nothing on this earth
More damaging to the soul
Than humiliation

Every waking moment since birth is an aesthetic experience for me.

My eyes search out harmony of colour, form and line, of shadow and light.

I am forever chasing my ideal of balancedness and harmony, a perfection of blended forms, a

convergence of line, visually, even in music and everyday experience.

A place where difference is real and the coming together of disparate personalities, perfection.

All my paintings are created while in the momentary state of inspiration.

There is no planning or preparation of any kind.

That is not to say they have no message, but rather the structure, the meaning, the colour

schemes all arise from the deepest part of myself, from the ubiquitous ‘I’.

That said, I am a person that loves ancientness and takes great joy in pondering the unknown,

for it is there that the magic of creativity comes alive.
