"The title sums it up. Its that stubborn human trait we all have. You can relate it to any moment in life when you wont give an inch and the situation ends in silence; a horrible almost tangible atmosphere. I witnessed a terrible moment recently which resulted with one such atmosphere. It involved two adults arguing over why on earth Kerry Macfaddon should, or indeed, could, have won Im A CelebrityGet Me Out Of Here. Another time was when I saw a young mother scolding her child for asking for a lolly: No! Youll ruin your tea! she squealed. The kid had a paddy. We all have the child in us."


"Many of my paintings are about good and evil innocence and malevolence. When I was a child I remember believing what a wonderful and happy place the world was. I loved to learn about other people in other countries and wanted to visit them all. Of course, I now realise things arent quite as I once imagined, and the once distant places where I so wanted to be are not so far away; they are actually on my doorstep. The people I wanted to meet are locked in a bitter hatred of each other, divided by race or religion. The world is a place where the innocent pay the heaviest price. It affects me deeply. Its like living in the garden of Good and Evil. I cant ignore it, so I depict it in the form of these innocent pictures. I leave it to the individual to look at my paintings and choose what they would like to see, innocence or malevolence the good or the evil!

Above all else I am, and always will be, an eternal optimist. Optimism is one of the greatest gifts we possess. When I think about it, I think of the song Fields of Gold by Sting the lyrics sum it up!

These two opposing juxtapositions ultimately explain many of my paintings. Look at the ones which have malevolent titles mainly the evil cats. To me they are representations of evil. However, at first glance, the impression they exude is optimism. The wide-eyed cats and dogs always look petrified and are representations of the innocent. You can choose to see these paintings any way you like. See love and happiness or death and the Devil,
