I paint in order to tell stories in light, color and form. My sense of colour comes from my Zimbabwean childhood. My subjects are local to where I live – Alexandra Palace, Wood Green, Crouch End, or occur in my travels. I love the moment just before something significant happens, or afterwards. My buildings are wonky, my figures are often lost in bafflement, my portraits are not intended to look like the people who sit for the portrait but hold something they are dreaming or thinking. I work in all media and on all structures, including walls and cars.
