Artists Statement:

I often find my subjects in odd places. A junkyard, more or less a graveyard for discarded machinery has been a source of inspiration for me for several years now. I find an amazing variety of formal and abstract compositions in the random placement of corroded metal, engine parts and old hardware. Whether I am painting a garden, a stack of jewel-coloured dishes or the engine of a Mack truck, I strive to convey the immediacy and excitement of the visual impact that first stopped me in my tracks and made me want to capture that particular image.
