I am for the most part, a self taught artist, and I suppose my work falls loosely under the catagory of 'Surreal'.
Having said that, it has always struck me that the 'real' and the 'surreal' are not so much separate catagories, but more separated by distance on a sliding scale, between 'Familiar Real' and 'Unfamiliar Real'.
I enjoy the journey of discovery that painting provides, with a shy hope that maybe the viewer is willing to embark and join me on my journey.
