What is it in your mural work that is truly you?
I have an all encompassing view in most of my mural work … one that embraces a full healthy colour spectrum and subject matter that both simultaneously embraces light and dark to make the simple things all the more beautiful.
What's something not a lot of people know about you?
That I am a Medical Imaging Scientist, with close to 20 yrs experience in medicine.
Would you say your work has a consistent tone or message?
From a view point of faith and hope most of my murals deal with natures ability to heal itself and overcome pressures placed upon it.
Why do you think art in public space is important to a community?
Art in public space is extremely important now more than ever. It represents a challenge to the ever growing commodification of human existence, it gives the public a unique point of view and sets up an ongoing dialogue in the observers mind about what the definition of public spaces should be.
In the last couple of years I have been travelling to the USA to paint murals all over Portland,Oregon. The feedback and appreciation has been immense from the whole cross section of the community. I would definitely be up for more of that in any city or town anywhere in the world.
