My assemblages are significantly different from my paintings in that they mainly constitute a lighter look at life. Titles may give this away: "007", "Elvis", etc.

Most pieces use found objects and are constructed to hang directly on a wall or be free standing. I enjoy the task of discovering alternative uses and interpretations for industrially produced and obsolete things, together with the process of construction itself.

"Heroes and Harleys" (After Janet Mitchell), 43x45cm, mixed media, 2007

Most artists I know are incurable hoarders and just as my paintings include personal found objects so do my assemblages. In that sense the documentation of the experience of the day to day finds its way into the body of the work and gives each piece a hidden history which is unique.

My major influences here are Picasso and Kurt Schwitters though the colour is similar to the sculpture of Miro. These pieces are by definition quirky and idiosyncratic, ‘even touching on humorous at times’, and often depict figures from popular culture or from the imagination.
