Join us at the Jean Cocteau Gallery and meet the artist!

I create figurative paintings layering objects against altered landscapes, using imagery I have collected while traveling around the world. These paintings are my response to the social and environmental issues facing more than 80% of the world’s population.
The ubiquitous jerry can, slums, jet trails, wash basins, fire, vehicles, saints and deities, flora & fauna are some of the subjects that I paint in an attempt to explore the above issues and inspire the viewer to think outside of themselves. I am fascinated with the common thread of those with means and those without, such as how we use objects, what we worship, how we live, the debris of man made objects and the resilience of the plant world.
My mixed media consists of oil paint, auto and spray paints on paper, wood, Yupo paper, vellum, acetate and silk screen on fabric. My intention is to create both “fine “art and art for the streets, and to blur the boundaries between them.
